Energy levels for an electron in a hydrogen atom are: A. Evenly spaced B. Farther apart near the nucleus C. Closer together near the nucleus D. Arrnaged randomly Please explain.
But why is so? @gurvinder
energy of nth level is -13.6/(n^2).....calculate difference b/n two adjacent levels...u shudnt have a prob now
\[E=Rhc*1/n^2 \] R, h and c are constant so you can write it as E = 13,6/n^2 but than E is in eV not Joule. n is a natural number (1;2;3;4;5...) If you calculate some energy-levels then you quickly see that the difference in energy gets smaller and smaller for bigger n.
