Homework Statement


For the third electron of Lithium atom moving in its permissible orbit, the values of angular momentum and the energy are?


Homework Equations


E= -2π2e4mZ2/n2h2
Third electron is in the second orbit


The Attempt at a Solution


The value for energy should be -9∏2e4m/2h2
Correct me if i am wrong for the above answer,
Angular momentum= nh/2∏
So its value should h/∏

Am i right?

These equations are only applicable for Li2+ ion, as Bohr Model are only applicable for Single electron species.

Can't say about Li "atom". Talk about Li "ion". Then your answer may be right, simple substitution.

Well, owing to the fact you asked multiple questions, I guess you are studying Bohr Model.
