Unformatted text preview: n the proton by the electric force in moving the
electron from infinity (position A) to the “surface” of the nucleus (position B) is given by
WAB = − q0 (VB − VA ) (Equation 19.4), where q0 = e = 1.6×10−19 C is the charge of a proton, VB is the electric potential at position B, and VA is the electric potential at position A. The
electric potentials VA, VB are due to the net charge q = +Ze of the Z = 29 protons in the
copper nucleus. The electric potential V a distance r from a point charge q = +Ze is given by
kq kZe
(Equation 19.6), where k = 8.99×109 N·m2/C2. Therefore, when the proton is

infinitely far from the copper nucleus (position A), the electric potential is VA = 0 V, and

where rB = 4.8×10−15 m is the radius of the copper nucleus. We note that the work WAB
given by Equation 19.4 will be in joules (J), which we will convert to electron volts (eV) via
the equivalence 1 eV = 1.6×10−19 J. Chapter 30 Problems 1549 SOLUTION Substituting VA = 0 V and q0 = −e into WAB = − q0 (VB − VA ) (Equation 19.4)
yields WAB = − q0 (VB − VA ) = −e (VB − 0 V ) = −eVB (2) Substituting Equation (1) into Equation (2), we obtain

n2 En = − (13.6 eV ) (30.13) where Z = 2 for helium. The minimum amount of energy required to remove the electron
from the ground state (n = 1) is that needed to move the electron into the state for which
n = 2. This amount equals the difference between the two energy levels.
b. The ionization energy defined as the minimum amount of energy required to remove the
electron from the n = 1 orbit to the highest possible excited state ( n = ∞ ) .
SOLUTION
a. The minimum amount of energy required to remove the electron from the ground state
(n = 1) and move it into the state for which n = 2 is
Minimum energy = E2 − E1 = − (13.6 eV ) ( 2 ) 2 22 − (13.6 eV ) ( 2 )2 = 40.8 eV
