Electron Orbitals

  1. Sep 2, 2014 #1
    Are the energy differences between orbitals the same for all of the elements? If not How do you determine the energy differences between orbitals?

    The energy differences are manifest in the atomic spectra - unique for each element. Quantum theory is needed to get these data.
