- An electron in the state n=2 has more energy than that at n=1
- That implies that the De- Broglie wavelength associated with the electron should also decrease ?

if we calculate the De-Broglie wavelengths from the postulate:

for n=1 ; λ = 33 * 10^-11 m

for n=2 ; λ = 66 * 10^-11 m

does this mean that as the energy of the electron increases the corresponding De-Broglie wavelength increases?! may be i am missing something very basic here.
