Please help me answer the question below and also show equations and steps of how you came to your answer. Thank you

1. The electron in a hydrogen tom is in the first excited state, when the electron acquires an additional 2.86eV of energy. What is the quantum number n of the state into which the electron moves?

2. A singly ionized helium atom (He+) has only one electron in orbit around the nucleus. What is the radius of the ion when it is in the second exited state?

3. Find the energy (in joules) of the photon that is emitted when the electron in a hydrogen atom undergoes a transition from the n=7 energy level to produce a line in the Paschen series.
