By calculating its wavelength, show that the first line in the Lyman series is UV radiation.

$\frac{1}{\lambda }=R\left(\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{f}}^{2}}-\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{i}}^{2}}\right)⇒\lambda =\frac{1}{R}\left[\frac{\left({n}_{\text{i}}\cdot {n}_{\text{f}}{\right)}^{2}}{{n}_{\text{i}}^{2}-{n}_{\text{f}}^{2}}\right];\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{n}_{\text{i}}=2,\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{n}_{\text{f}}=1,\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}$ so that

$\lambda =\left(\frac{m}{1.097×{\text{10}}^{7}}\right)\left[\frac{\left(2×1{\right)}^{2}}{{2}^{2}-{1}^{2}}\right]=1\text{.}\text{22}×{\text{10}}^{-7}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}=\text{122 nm}$ , which is UV radiation.

Look up the values of the quantities in ${a}_{\text{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi }^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}{}^{}$ , and verify that the Bohr radius ${a}_{\text{B}}$ is $\text{0.529}×{\text{10}}^{-\text{10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$ .

${a}_{\text{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi }^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}=\frac{\left(\text{6.626}×{\text{10}}^{-\text{34}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{J·s}{\right)}^{2}}{{4\pi }^{2}\left(9.109×{\text{10}}^{-\text{31}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{kg}\right)\left(8.988×{\text{10}}^{9}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}\text{·}{\text{m}}^{2}/{C}^{2}\right)\left(1\right)\left(1.602×{\text{10}}^{-\text{19}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{C}{\right)}^{2}}=\text{0.529}×{\text{10}}^{-\text{10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$

Verify that the ground state energy ${E}_{0}$ is 13.6 eV by using ${E}_{0}=\frac{{2\pi }^{2}{q}_{e}^{4}{m}_{e}{k}^{2}}{{h}^{2}}\text{.}$

Find the radius of a hydrogen atom in the $n=2$ state according to Bohr’s theory.

$\text{2.12}×{\text{10}}^{\text{–10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$

Show that $\left(13.6 eV\right)/\text{hc}=\text{1.097}×{\text{10}}^{7}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}=R$ (Rydberg’s constant), as discussed in the text.

A singly ionized helium ion has only one electron and is denoted ${\text{He}}^{+}$ . What is the ion’s radius in the ground state compared to the Bohr radius of hydrogen atom?

Verify Equations ${r}_{n}=\frac{{n}^{2}}{Z}{a}_{\text{B}}$ and ${a}_{B}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi }^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}=\text{0.529}×{\text{10}}^{-\text{10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$ using the approach stated in the text. That is, equate the Coulomb and centripetal forces and then insert an expression for velocity from the condition for angular momentum quantization.

$\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{r}_{n}^{2}}=\frac{{m}_{e}{V}^{2}}{{r}_{n}}\text{,}$ so that ${r}_{n}=\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{m}_{e}{V}^{2}}=\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{m}_{e}}\frac{1}{{V}^{2}}\text{.}$ From the equation ${m}_{e}{\text{vr}}_{n}=n\frac{h}{2\pi }\text{,}$ we can substitute for the velocity, giving: ${r}_{n}=\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{m}_{e}}\cdot \frac{{4\pi }^{2}{m}_{e}^{2}{r}_{n}^{2}}{{n}^{2}{h}^{2}}$ so that ${r}_{n}=\frac{{n}^{2}}{Z}\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi }^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}=\frac{{n}^{2}}{Z}{a}_{\text{B}},$ where ${a}_{\text{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi }^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}$ .

The wavelength of the four Balmer series lines for hydrogen are found to be 410.3, 434.2, 486.3, and 656.5 nm. What average percentage difference is found between these wavelength numbers and those predicted by $\frac{1}{\lambda }=R\left(\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{f}}^{2}}-\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{i}}^{2}}\right)$ ? It is amazing how well a simple formula (disconnected originally from theory) could duplicate this phenomenon.

A few grains of table salt were put in a cup of cold water kept at constant temperature and left undisturbed. eventually all the water tasted salty. this is due to?
Aunt Faith,please i am thinking the dissolution here from the word "solution" exposed the grains of salt to be dissolved in the water.Thankyou

it is either diffusion or osmosis. just confused
Faith
due to solvation....
Pathani
what is solvation pls
Faith
water molecule surround the salt molecules . solute solute attraction break in the same manner solvent solvent interaction also break. as a result solute and solvent attraction took place.
Pathani
okay thanks
Faith
my pleasure
Pathani
what is solvation pls
Faith
water act as a solvent and salt act as solute
Pathani
okay thanks

its ok

20cm3 of 1mol/dm3 solution of a monobasic acid HA and 20cm3 of 1mol/dm3 solution of NaOH are mixed in a calorimeter and a temperature rise of 274K is observed. If the heat capacity of the calorimeter is 160J/K, calculate the enthalpy of neutralization of the acid.(SHCw=4.2J/g/K) Formula. (ms*cs+C)*T

because it changes only direction and the speed is kept constant
