Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this. I need to take the Bohr energy equation ( En= -2.178 x 10^-18) (Z^2 /n^2) and the Inoization energy equation ( IE= Einfinity - Eground state). I need to somehow modify the bohr energy equation that can be used to find the inonization enery of hydrogen in kJ/mol.

I'm completly stuck so if anyone could give me some pointers on how to start this problem that would be awesome!!!

Thank you

For the ionization energy of hydrogen, it means that n (initial) is 1 and n (final) is infinity. Substitute those 2 values into Bohr equation to get 2 values. (1 over infinity = 0) Then the difference of the 2 values is the ionization energy for 1 hydrogen atom . Finally, remember to multiply the ionization energy for 1 hydrogen atom with Avogadro constant to get the ionization energy in unit KJ/mol.
