1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A hydrogen atom has an electron in the fundamental state. a. Show that a radiation with λ = 50 nm will ionize the atom. b. What will be the excess kinetic energy of the electron in joules? Round up your answer to the nearest hundredth. 2. Relevant equations 1/lambda= R(1/n^2-1/k^2) (im not sure if this is the equation to be used) 3. The attempt at a solution 1/5x10^-8= 1.097x10^7(1/1^2-1/n^2) 2x10^7=1.097x10^7(1/1^2-1/n^2) 1.823154057=1-1/n^2 .8231540565=1/n^2 1.214839424=n^2 1.1= n how would this show that atom ionizes? b. ?
