34. (a) The energy level corresponding to the probability density distribution shown in Fig. 40-20 is the n = 2 level. Its energy is given by E 2 = 13 . 6eV 2 2 = 3 . 4eV . (b) As the electron is removed from the hydrogen atom the ±nal energy of the proton-electron system is zero. Therefore, one needs to supply at least 3
