How did you get the energy for N = 4? Use the same equation but plug in 1 for N = 1 (that's the ground state). Now subtract the energy in the two states to get the amount (the difference) relesed when the electron falls from n = 4 to n = 1.
I used: E = -(Rhc)/n^2
R= 1.097*10^7 m^-1
h= 6.6261*10^-34 J s
c= 3.00*10^8 m s^-1
E= -1.36*10^-19 J
so I just use final minus initial? How so?
when I do the same as above...but put in 1squared=1, rather than 4squared=16..
I get: -2.18064951*10^-18
then should the answer be: -2.18065*10^-18 - -1.36*10^-19? = -2.04*10^-18??
guess it was correct... the real answer, rounded though, came to be: -2.05*10^-18J
Using 2.180 x 10^-18 I found 2.044 x 10^-18 J for the difference in energy levels.
A microwave oven operates at 2.40 . What is the wavelength of the radiation produced by this appliance?
.125m or 125000000nm
Energy is an absolute value, the answer should be 2.05*10^-18J, instead of -2.05*10^-18J.
