**1. The ionization energies of Rb and Ag are 4.28 eV and 7.57 eV, respectively. Calculate the ionization energies of an H atom with its electron in the same orbitals as the highest energy electrons in these two atoms. Another way of thinking of this is: what would the ionization energies of RB and Ag be if they each only had one proton?**

I wasn't sure on what equation to use for this problem or how to go about it.

I tried the E=-hcR∞(z^2/n^2) but got a negative number and that didn't seem right
