# Problem: How much energy is required to ionize hydrogen in each of the following states?a. ground state

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the energy (J) required to ionize hydrogen from the ground state.

To calculate the energy required for the electronic transition, we will use the Bohr Equation shown below which relates electronic transition to the energy:

ΔE = energy related to the transition
RH = Rydberg constant

ni = initial principal energy level
nf = final principal energy level
