How do I construct an energy level diagram for the hydrogen atom. I have all the energies, but I do not know how to make the diagram.

  • chemistry -

    On a sheet of paper just draw lines to indicate the energy levels. The spacing should become less as you go higher. It would look something like this.
    ------------- n = 5
    ------------- n = 4

    -------------n = 3


    ------------- n = 2



    ---------------n = 1
    and continue above n = 5 with the lines getting closer and closer until you get to n = infinity.
