1. Ionization Energy of Lithium problem

The energy needed to strip all three electrons from a Li(g) atom was found to be 1.96*10^4 kJ/mol. The first ionization energy of Li is 520 kJ/mol. Calculate the second ionization energy of Lithium atoms (the energy required for the process) Li+(g) ---> Li+2 + e- Equation: frequency =...
2. How does the size of He- compare to that of a neon atom?

I understand that He- is larger than He, but I don't know which is bigger between He- and Ne.. please help??
3. Quantum Mechanics Problem: ionization potential

The outer electron (valence electron) of an alkali atom may be treated in an approximate way, as if it were in a hydrogenic orbital. Suppose that one takes the quantum number for the valence electron to be 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, respectively, for Li, Na, K, Rb, and Cs. What values of the...
4. Quantum mechanics problem: hypothetical spin quantum number and its

So we are doing problems involving potential energy of electrons, wave functions, and all that jazz, but I am utterly lost on how to do this problem... The professor threw it at us, and I am completely lost on how to even begin. Please help me In a different universe from ours the spin...
