35. (a) Since energy is conserved, the energy E of the photon is given by E = E i E f ,whe re E i is the initial energy of the hydrogen atom and E f is the Fnal energy. The electron energy is given by ( 13 . 6 eV) /n 2 ,where n is the principal quantum number. Thus, E = E i E f = 13 . 6 eV (3) 2 13 . 6 eV (1) 2 =12 . 1eV .
