1) An electron from certain higher orbit (x) upon de-excitation to first excited state of He+ forms a maximum of 6 spectral lines. The wavelength associated with the electron in the above higher orbit x is observed to be:
(a) 8.31 Å (b) 11.63 Å (c) 6.65 Å (d) 13.3 Å
(d) Maximum number of spectral lines if an electron jumps from ‘n2’ level to ‘n1’ level in a mono-electronic species = n2 – n1
x – 2 = 6 ⇒ x = 8
From de Broglie hypothesis and Bohr’s theory,
2πr = nλ [n no.oforbit]
2πr = xλ
λ = 2πr/x
λ = (2×3.14×0.529×64)/(8×2)
λ = 13.3Å
Alternatively, de Broglie wavelength (λ) can also be calculated by λ = h/mv
Where , (2.18×106)/n m/s
λ = h/mv = (6.629×10-34×8)/(9.1×10-31×2.18×106×2)
λ = 13.3Å
2) Consider the following statements:
I. If ionization energy of He+ is 19.6×10-18 J per atom, then the energy of second stationary state in Li2+ ion is – 11.025×10-18J.
II. The difference in energy between the Ist and IInd Bohr orbit of hydrogen atom is 1.635 × 10-8 J (RH = 109677 cm-1, h = 6.6 × 10-34Js, C = 3 × 108ms-1)
III. According to Bohr’s Theory, Ionization energy of Li+ ion is 1180 KJ mol-1.
IV. The wavelength number for the shortest wavelength transition in Balmer series of atomic hydrogen is 27758 cm-1.
Now, identify the correct statements from the above:
(a) I, II, III, IV (b) I, II (c) III & IV (d) I, II, IV
(b) I. Energy of first Bohr orbit in one electron species given as:
E = Z2 × EH
For He+, Z = 2
∴ EH = E/Z2 = -(19.6×10-18)/4 J
Now, for Li2+ (Z = 3)
E = (3)2 × -(19.6×10-18)/4 = -44.1 × 10-18 J
∴ for the 2nd Bohr orbit,
E2 = E1/n2 = (-44.1×10-18)/4 = 11.025×10-18 J
II. ΔE = RHhcZ2 (1/n12 – 1/n22)
= 1.09672×107×6.6×10-34×3×108(1/12 – 1/22)
= 1.635 × 10-8 J
III. Bohr’s theory in not true for Li+ as it contains two electrons.
IV. 1/λ = RHZ2 (1/n12 – 1/n22)
For shortest wavelength in Balmer series, n1 = 2, n2 = ∞
∴ 1/λ = 1.09677×12(1/22 – 1/∞2) = 27419.25 cm-1
3) In Bohr series of lines of hydrogen spectrum, the third line from red end corresponds to which one of the following inter-orbit jumps of the electrons for Bohr orbits in an atom of hydrogen
(a) 3 → 2 (b) 5 → 2 (c) 4 → 1 (d) 2 → 5
4) When photons of energy 4.25 eV strike the surface of a metal A, the ejected photoelectrons have maximum kinetic energy, TA (expressed in eV) and de Broglie wavelength, λA . The maximum kinetic energy of photoelectrons liberated from another metal B by photons of energy 4.20 eV is TB(TB = TA – 1.50eV) . If the de Broglie wavelength of these photoelectrons is λB(λB = 2λA), then which is not correct?
(a) The work function of A is 2.25 eV (b) the work function of B is 3.70 eV
(c) TA = 2.00 eV (d) TB = 2.75 eV
(d) λ = h/mu ⇒ u = h/λm
uA = (h /λA)m
uB = (h/λB)m
∴ uA/uB = λB/λA = 2 (λB = 2λA)
Now, TA/TB = muA2/muB2 = 4/1
TA = 4TB
Also TA – TB = 1.50
4TB – TB = 1.50
TB = 0.50
TA = 0.50 + 1.50 = 2.00 eV
Also, 4.25 = ΦA+TA
∴ ΦA = 4.24 – 2.00 = 2.25eV
4.20 = ΦB+TB
ΦB = 4.20 – 0.50 = 3.70 eV
5) Consider one He+ ion in excited state (n = 5). Which of the following observations will hold true as per the Bohr’s model?
(a) 10 emission spectral lines will be seen
(b) The ionization energy needed is less than 2 eV
(c) The longest emitted wavelength is less than 10/R (R = Rydberg’s constant)
(d) The electronic separation from the centre of nucleus is more than 6Å
(a) A multitude of He+ will produce 10 possible emission spectral lines. However, a single He+ can produce maximum 4 lines (not more)
5 → 4 → 3 → 2 → 1
(b) En = -13.6(Z2/n2) = -13.6(22/52) = -13.6(4/25) = -2.176 eV
1E = + 2.176 eV > 2 eV
1/λ = RZ2 (1/n12 – 1/n22)
(c) 1/λ = R4 (1/42 – 1/52)
1/λ = 4R [9/(16×25)]
λ = (16×25)/(4×9×R) = 100/9R > 10/R
(d) rn = 0.53 (n2/Z) = 0.53 (52/Z) = 6.625Å > 6Å
6) Which of the following sets of quantum numbers represents the highest energy of an atom?
(a) n = 4, l = 0, m = 0, s = +1/2 (b) n = 3, l = 0, m = 9, s = +1/2
(c) n = 3, l = 1, m = 1, s = +1/2 (d) n = 3, l = 2, m = 1, s = +1/2
(d) Energy of an electron is given by ‘n+l’ rule which is “higher the value of ‘n+l’, higher the energy of electron and for same value of ‘n+l’, higher to ‘n’ value higher the energy of electron”.
(a) ‘n+l’ = 4 + 0 = 4 (4s)
(b) ‘n+l’ = 3 + 0 = 3 (3s)
(c) ‘n+l’ = 3 + 1 = 4 (3p)
(d) ‘n+l’ = 3 + 2 = 5 (3d)
Hence 3d has the highest energy amongst others.
7) A 1 kW radio transmitter operates at a frequency of 880 Hz. How many quanta per second does it emit?
(a) 1.71 × 1021 (b) 1.71 × 1030 (c) 6.02 × 1023 (d) 2.85 × 1026
(b) A 1kW radio transmitter emits 1000 Joules of radio waves per second.
Energy of one quanta, E = hν
= 6.626×10-34×880×103 = 5.83×10-28 J
Number of quanta emitted per second = Energy emitted per sec/Energy of one quanta
= 1000(5.83×10-28) = 1.71×1030
8) The orbital diagram in which both the Pauli’s exclusion principle and Hund’s rule are violated is
(a) ↑↓ ↑↑,↑ (b) ↑↓ ↑↓, ,↑↓ (c) ↑↓ ↓,↓,↓ (d) ↑↓ ↑↓,↑↓,↑
(a) According Hund’s rule of maximum multiplicity, electrons will be arranged in degenerate orbitals in such a way that there multiplicity is maximum.
Multiplicity = 2|ST| + 1
ST → Total spin
According to Pauli’s Exclusion Principle, an orbital can have a maximum of two electrons having opposite spins.
(a) ST = (1/2)+(1/2)+(1/2) = 3/2
Multiplicity = 2|3/2|+1 = 4
This case is certainly violating Pauli’s Exclusion Principle. However; it seems like that it obeys Hund’s Rule but it does not as if I rearrange the electrons according to Pauli’s Exclusion Principle, the multiplicity will drop to 2 instead of 4. Hence, this case does not obey both Pauli’s Exclusion principle as well as Hund’s rule.
In (b), only Hund’s rule is violated and (c) and (d) are correct as per both the rules.
9) Which element has a hydrogen like spectrum whose lines have wavelength one fourth of atomic hydrogen?
(a) He+ (b) Li2+ (c) Be3+ (d) B4+
10) The value of (n2 + n1) and (n22 – n12) for He+ ion in atomic spectrum are 4 and 8 respectively. The wavelength of emitted photon when electron jump from n2 to n1 is
(a) (32/9) RH (b) (9/32) RH (c) 9/32RH (d) 32/9RH
11) Which of the following statements are correct?
(a) The total spectral lines obtained from a single line during Zeeman effect is (2l + 1).
(b) In the Lyman series as the energy liberated during transition increases then the distance between the spectral lines goes on decreasing.
(c) The highest probability of finding an electron in 1s orbital is in the vicinity of the circumference.
(d) The highest probability of finding an electron in 1s orbital is exactly at the middle between nucleus and circumference.
(a, b, c)
(a) The total lines obtained due to the splitting of a spectral line in the presence of magnetic effect is (2l + 1) as the presence of orbitals which have specific orientation in the presence of external field take up certain new orientation. The number of orbitals are equal to (2l + 1) and for each orbital one splitting takes place.
(b) As we move away from the nucleus the difference in the energy levels become lesser and lesser hence.
For 1st line of Lyman ΔE = E1 (1/n12 – 1/nn2)
ΔE1 = E1 (3/4) – 1st line; ΔE2 = E1 (8/9) –2nd line
ΔE3 = E1 (15/16) –34rd line ; ΔE4 = E1 (24/25) – 4th line;
ΔE5 = E1 (35/36) – 5th line; ΔE2 – ΔE1 = E1 (8/9 – 3/4) = E1 (5/36)
ΔE3 – ΔE2 = E1 (15/16 – 8/9) = E1 (135-128)/144 = E1 (7/144)
ΔE4 – ΔE3 = E1 (24/25 – 15/16) = E1 (16×24 – 15×25)/(25×16)
= E1 (9/400)
We find that (ΔE2 – ΔE1) > (ΔE3 – ΔE2) > (ΔE4 – ΔE3)
Hence the distance also become lesser and lesser.
(c) The distance from the nucleus for maximum probability of finding electrons is 0.53 Å. This is not on the circumference of the orbital but is in the vicinity of the circumference.

(c) the threshold frequency of the metal is 1.21 × 1015 sec–1
(d) the velocity of the photo-electrons is 4.48 × 106 m/sec.
(b, c, d) According to emission photoelectric effect
hν= hν0 + (1/2) mV2
E of incident radiation = hc/λ = (6.626×10-34×3×108)/200×10-10 = 9.94 × 10–18 J
ν0 = (5×1.6×10-19)/(6.623×10-34) = 1.2 × 1015 sec–1
(1/2) mv2 = 9.94 × 10–18 – 8 × 10–19 = 9.14 × 10–18
v = √(2×9.144×10-18)/√(9.1×10-31)
= 4.47 × 106 m/sec
13) Energy equivalent of 10.00 cm–1 is –
(a) 2 × 10–22 J per photon (b) 2.9 × 10–2 kcal mol–1 photon
(c) 1.2 × 10–1 kJ mol–1 photon (d) 2 × 10–15 ergs per photon
(a, b, c, d) 10 cm–1 = 1000 m–1
∴ E = hν = hc/λ = hcν–
= 6.66 × 10–34 (Js) × 3 × 108 (ms–1) × 1000 (m–1)
= 2 × 10–22 J per photon = 2 × 10–15 ergs per photon
= 2 × 10–22 × 6.02 × 1023 J mol–1
= 1.2 × 10–1 kJ mol–1
= 2.9 × 10–2 kcal mol–1

Given λ2 = 30.4×10-7 cm
λ1 = 108.5×10-7 cm
let excited state of He+ be N2. it comes from n2 to n1 and then n1 to 1 to emit two successive photon
1/λ2 = RH.z2 (1/12 – 1/n12)
1/(30.4×10-7) = 109678×4 (1/12 – 1/n12)
n1 = 2
Now 1/λ1 = RH.z2 (1/22 – 1/n22)
1/(108.5×10-7) = 109678×4 (1/22 – 1/n22)
n2 = 5
Thus, excited state for He is 5th orbit.
30) Hydrogen like atom with atomic no ‘Z’ is in a higher excited state of quantum no. ‘n’. This excited state can make a transition to the first excited state by successively emitting two photons of energies 20ev & 28.3 ev respectively. Alternatively the atom from the same excited state can make transition to the 2nd excited state by emitting photons of energies 8.0ev & 10.13ev respectively. Determine ‘Z’ .
Energy difference between, n = 2 & n = 3
= 20 + 28.3 -8.0 -10.13
= 30. 17
30. 17 = 13. 6 (1/22 – 1/32)×Z2
⇒ z ≈ 3.99 = 4.0
Energy difference between n1 = n & n2 = 2
= 20 + 28.3 =48.3
48.3= 13.6 (1/22 – 1/n2)4×4
n ≈ 6.0
