_____________________________________.
n=1>ground or lowest energy orbit • The values of n are integers 1,2,3, etc. with n = 1 representing
the orbit closest to the nucleus. 17 Absorption and emission energy if n= 3,4,5 or 6,

region.colors will be
different for
different orbitals. minimum infinity • Calculated orbital energies will
always be negative.
• The more negative the value, the
more stable the orbit. The most
stable orbit is for n = 1 (ground
state).
• When an e is not in the lowest
available orbit it is in an
second allowable energy level.
_______________________.
• The energy is negative as it
takes energy to unbind (ionize)
the e from the nucleus.
• An unbound electron has zero
(binding) energy. n=1 to n=2give off light in
UV region. if goes from n=2 to
1UV again. from allowable
