Problem: What is the energy of an electron in the =3 energy state of a hydrogen atom? Solution: E = hν = hc/λ According to the Rydberg formula: 1/λ = R(Z 2 /n 2 ) where R = 1.097 x 10 7 m -1 Z = Atomic number of the atom (Z=1 for hydrogen) Combine these formulas: E = hcR(Z 2 /n 2 ) h = 6.626 x 10 -34 J·s
