Solution: For an He+ ion, do the 2s and 2p orbitals have the same energy?

Problem

For an He+ ion, do the 2s and 2p orbitals have the same energy?

Solution

We are asked for an He+ ion if 2s and 2p orbitals have the same energy.

A hydrogen-like ion is any atomic nucleus which has one electron and thus is isoelectronic with the hydrogen atom.

Examples of this are He+, Li2+, Be3+, B4+.
