Problem

An electron is excited from the n = 1 ground state to the n = 3 state in a hydrogen atom. Which of the following statements is/are true? Correct the false statements to make them true.

a. It takes more energy to ionize (completely remove) the electron from  n = 3 than from the ground state.

b. The electron is farther from the nucleus on average in the  n = 3 state than in the  n = 1 state.

c. The wavelength of light emitted if the electron drops from  n = 3 to n = 2 will be shorter than the wavelength of light emitted if the electron falls from  n = 3 to n = 1.

d. The wavelength of light emitted when the electron returns to the ground state from  n = 3 will be the same as the wavelength of light absorbed to go from n = 1 to n = 3.

e. For n = 3, the electron is in the first excited state.
