Energy Quantization 1. A hydrogen atom is in state N = 4 , where N = 1 is the lowest energy state. What is K+U in electron volts for this atomic hydrogen energy state? The hydrogen atom makes a transition to state N = 2 . What is the energy in electron volts of the photon emitted in this transition? 2. How much energy in electron volts is required to ionize a hydrogen atom (that is, remove the electron from the proton), if initially the atom is in the state N = 2 ? 3. Consider a collection of hydrogen atoms. Initially each individual atom is in one of the lowest three energy states (N=1,2,3) . What will be the energies of the photons emitted by this collection of hydrogen atoms? 4. How many different photon energies would emerge from a collection of hydrogen atoms which occupy the lowest four energy states (N=1,2,3,4)? (You do not need to calculate the energies of these transitions) 5. Suppose you had a collection of hypothetical quantum objects whose individual energy levels were -4.0eV, -2.3eV and -1.6eV. If nearly all of the individual objects were in the ground state, what would be the energies of dark spectral lines in the absorption spectrum, if visible white light (1.8 to 3.1 eV) passes through the
