Increasing the number of photons increases the number of emitted electrons, while increasing the frequency of each photon increases the energy transferred to each electron resulting in greater electron speed.28.3 The distance between adjacent electron orbits gets progressively larger and larger.According to the Bohr model, the radius of an electron orbit in a hydrogen atom is proportional to the square of its state n. Therefore, as n increases, the distance between adjacent orbits increases.28.4 The difference in energy between adjacent electron orbits gets progressively smaller and smaller.According to the Bohr model, the magnitude of the energy of a hydrogen atom in state n is inversely proportional to the square of n. Therefore, as n increases, the difference between adjacent energy states decreases.28.5 If the photon's wavelength were doubled, its energy would be 12EA photon's energy is inversely proportional to its wavelength. Doubling the wavelength halves its energy.28.6 If an electron makes a transition from the n = 3 to the n = 1 shell, it will give up 72.0 eV of energyHigher shells correspond to higher energy states. An atom transitioning from a higher to a lower shell must release an amount of energy equal to the difference between energy levels.28.7 5.0 eVA table of common elements and their work functions is provided on page 935 in your text book.28.9 81.0 E.En=hcRn2Ground state:E1=hcR12=hcRtherefore: En=E1n2E1=Enn2E1=E992E1=81En28.10 wavelength decreases=hmvWavelength and velocity are inversely proportional, so a greater voltage V results in greater electron velocity v.28.16 greater than 2KThe kinetic energy of a released electron is equal to the energy of the photon that released it minus the energy it took to release it: K1=Edoesn't change when E is doubled, so:K2=2Ethe difference between K1and K2:K=2EEK=Eis always positive, so:EEEK1if K had doubled, the difference between K1and K2 would be K1, but we found the difference to be E, which is greater than K1.28.13 the wavelength of the photon increases.When the photon collides with a stationary electron, it loses some of its energy. we saw before that the energy and wavelength of a photon are inversely proportional, so a decrease in energy corresponds with an increase in wavelength....
