Question

It is possible to determine the ionization energy for hydrogen using the Bohr equation. Calculate the ionization energy (in kJ) for a mole of hydrogen atoms, making the assumption that ionization is the transition from n = 1 to n = ∞.

A. 7.62 x 103 kJ

B. 2.76 x 103 kJ

C. 1.31 x 103 kJ

D. 3.62 x 103 kJ

E. 5.33 x 103 kJ
