One of Bohr's postulates for hydrogen was that the electron and the proton were stable in the atom only if some quantity had a minimum value or some integer times that minimum value. That quantity was a. b. c. d. energy. charge. angular momentum. radius. • If an electron in a hydrogen atom makes a transition from some state to a lower state do the following increase or decrease – Kinetic energy – Potential energy – Orbital angular momentum The approximate energy of the lowest Bohr orbit in the hydrogen atom is a. 0.1 eV b. 1.0 eV c. 10.0 eV d. 100 eV e. -100 eV f. -10.0 eV g. -1.0 eV h. -0.1 eV • What energy is required to ionize a hydrogen atom with an electron in the first excited state? (remove the electron from the atom?)
