a) -2 b) 2 c) 1 d) -1 @UnkleRhaukus can't say exactly
well i dont think negative energy makes much sense in this question
Yes, since total energy and potential energy both are \(-ve\) and their ratio will be positive... (for electron)
how is either negative/?
well since : 2 potential energy = total energy
should the answer be 2 : 1 ? Well @UnkleRhaukus In the case of electron, both are negative
really?
yes...
i dont know what you mean
total energy = -ve potential energy = - ve and hence : their ratio will be +ve
@hartnn and @lgbasallote any suggestions/ideas ?
I assume you're basing this on an electron orbiting a nucleus (which you need to say, otherwise this doesn't make any sense), in which case the virial theorem states that on the average, \[2T = -U \] where T is the kinetic energy and U is the potential energy. The total energy is thus \[ E = T + U = -\frac{1}{2}U + U = \frac{1}{2}U \]
OK very right .. so the answer is 2 ?
The ratio of total energy to potential energy is 1/2, but the ration of potential energy to total energy is 2.
ratio*
lol I changed the question wrong
thanks @Jemurray3
