Hey Everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you have an electron with the various energy levels: -14 eV, -30 eV, -52 eV, -80 eV.

And that the electron can only move between these levels.

How do I go about finding the photo energy that is emitted?

Do I just subtract the various levels?

Ex. 14 - 30 = -16 etc?
