Unformatted text preview: joules of energy. (2 pts)
Absorbing that energy means it has jumped to a higher (“excited”) energy level (higher energy
orbital). It will then release that energy as a photon of E = 1.81 × 10-18 J as it falls to a lower energy
level (lower energy orbital). 4. An electron that exists at a ground state energy of -9.989 x 10-20 joules absorbs a quantum of energy
and jumps to an excited state energy of -8.759 x 10-20 joules. What will be the energy of the wave it
will emit when going back to ground state? (No...
