The higher the energy level occupied by an electron in the hydrogen atom, the larger the atom. The diameter of the atom is proportional to n^2, where n=1 labels the lowest or "ground" state, n=3 is the thrid state, and so on. If the atom's diameter is 1 x 10^(-10)m in its lowest energy state, what is its diameter in state number 50? How many unexcited atoms could be fit within this one giant atom?
