8.68 [assume yield is 100%; answer is included on the solution key to PS 10].

       Prior exam problem on H emission

       Solution to prior exam problem
[This problem is good practice on the emission concept; however, it is not too realistic
because some of the H atoms may undergo emission to other final states besides n=1.]

Exam 3 Information

       Practice problems from textbook:
4.34 (sorry, typo on original assignment) 4.43: see textbook figure on p. 138; atomic radius decreases slightly
across a row due to _______________. [The size stays roughly the same
because the shell number is the same.]
4.53, 4.59, 4.99 [note all these ions have the same exact electron configuration], 4.111
