Why is a shorter wavelength of light emitted when an electron falls from n equals 4 to n equals 1 than when an electron falls from n equals 2 to n equals 1?

Shorter wavelength = more energy. The farther the electron falls, the more energy that will be emitted.

What will affect the amount of gravitational potential energy?

The mass, height and the force of gravity at the location.


What is the conversion between N-m to eV and vice-versa?

A Newton*Meter (N·m) is a Joule (J) and a Joule is the derived unit of energy in SI units. N=(kg*m/s^2) so a N·m=(kg*m^2/s^2)=J. An electron volt is also a quantity of energy equal to approximately 1.602×10−19 J. Correspondingly, one joule equals 6.24150974×1018 eV. By definition, it is equal to the amount of kinetic energy gained by a single unbound electron when it accelerates through an electric potential difference of one volt. Thus it is 1 volt (1 joule per coulomb) multiplied by the electron charge (1 e, or 1.60217653(14)×10−19 C). Therefore, one electron volt is equal to 1.60217653(14)×10−19 J. The electron volt is not an SI unit and its value is derived from knowing the charge of the electron. To change Js to eV divide by the charge of an electron 1.602x10-19 C. To change eVs to Js multiply by the charge of an electron 1.602x10-19 C.


How many AH equals to 1KVA?

You really can't compare that. * Ampere-hour is a unit of energy. If you multiply ampere x hours x voltage (the voltage is implied), you get energy. * kVA is a unit of power. Note that power is energy / time.

What does the wave models say about electrons?

The wave model says that it is impossible to determine the exact location of an electron. Scientists can only predict where an electron is most likely to be found. The probable location of an electron is based on how much energy the electron has.

Orbit of electrons around the nucleus of an atom?

No. Quantum Theory states that we can only know the probable location of an electron. Electron Orbitals are just the three dimensional representations of the most likely location of the electron. Electron movement is not well understood and highly unpredictable.

How do energy levels of electrons compare?

Each electron orbit has a definite amount of energy, and the farther away the electron is from the nucleus, the greater is the energy level. The first level can hold two electrons, the second can hold up to eight, the third can hold up to eight as well, etc... ^.^


What is the location of the electron in the electron clouds?

Electrons in the electron cloud of an atom are located at specific energy levels. We cannot say with certainty exactly where the electron is physically located at any given moment, and that's because electrons can be at different physical locations at any instant of time. There are quantum mechanical reasons for this, and just one example of the "variability" of location of an electron is quantum mechanical tunnelling.


The energy of an electron varies depending upon which energy level that electron occupies.?

Yes, the energy of an electron does vary depending on which energy level it occupies.
