What is a hydrogen-like atom, and how are the energies and radii of its electron orbits related to those in hydrogen?
By calculating its wavelength, show that the first line in the Lyman series is UV radiation.
$\frac{1}{\lambda}=R\left(\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{f}}^{2}}-\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{i}}^{2}}\right)\Rightarrow \lambda =\frac{1}{R}\left[\frac{({n}_{\text{i}}\cdot {n}_{\text{f}}{)}^{2}}{{n}_{\text{i}}^{2}-{n}_{\text{f}}^{2}}\right];\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{n}_{\text{i}}=\mathrm{2,}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{n}_{\text{f}}=\mathrm{1,}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}$ so that
$\lambda =\left(\frac{\mathrm{m}}{1.097\times {\text{10}}^{7}}\right)\left[\frac{(2\times 1{)}^{2}}{{2}^{2}-{1}^{2}}\right]=1\text{.}\text{22}\times {\text{10}}^{-7}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}=\text{122 nm}$ , which is UV radiation.

Look up the values of the quantities in ${a}_{\text{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi}^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}{}^{}$ , and verify that the Bohr radius ${a}_{\text{B}}$ is $\text{0.529}\times {\text{10}}^{-\text{10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$ .
${a}_{\text{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi}^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}=\frac{(\text{6.626}\times {\text{10}}^{-\text{34}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{J\xb7s}{)}^{2}}{{4\pi}^{2}(9.109\times {\text{10}}^{-\text{31}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{kg})(8.988\times {\text{10}}^{9}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}\text{\xb7}{\text{m}}^{2}/{\mathrm{C}}^{2})(1)(1.602\times {\text{10}}^{-\text{19}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{C}{)}^{2}}=\text{0.529}\times {\text{10}}^{-\text{10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$
Verify that the ground state energy ${E}_{0}$ is 13.6 eV by using ${E}_{0}=\frac{{2\pi}^{2}{q}_{e}^{4}{m}_{e}{k}^{2}}{{h}^{2}}\text{.}$

Verify Equations ${r}_{n}=\frac{{n}^{2}}{Z}{a}_{\text{B}}$ and ${a}_{\mathrm{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi}^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}=\text{0.529}\times {\text{10}}^{-\text{10}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{m}$ using the approach stated in the text. That is, equate the Coulomb and centripetal forces and then insert an expression for velocity from the condition for angular momentum quantization.
$\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{r}_{n}^{2}}=\frac{{m}_{e}{V}^{2}}{{r}_{n}}\text{,}$ so that ${r}_{n}=\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{m}_{e}{V}^{2}}=\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{m}_{e}}\frac{1}{{V}^{2}}\text{.}$ From the equation ${m}_{e}{\text{vr}}_{n}=n\frac{h}{2\pi}\text{,}$ we can substitute for the velocity, giving: ${r}_{n}=\frac{{\text{kZq}}_{e}^{2}}{{m}_{e}}\cdot \frac{{4\pi}^{2}{m}_{e}^{2}{r}_{n}^{2}}{{n}^{2}{h}^{2}}$ so that ${r}_{n}=\frac{{n}^{2}}{Z}\frac{{h}^{2}}{{4\pi}^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}=\frac{{n}^{2}}{Z}{a}_{\text{B}},$ where ${a}_{\text{B}}=\frac{{h}^{2}}{{\mathrm{4\pi}}^{2}{m}_{e}{\text{kq}}_{e}^{2}}$ .
The wavelength of the four Balmer series lines for hydrogen are found to be 410.3, 434.2, 486.3, and 656.5 nm. What average percentage difference is found between these wavelength numbers and those predicted by $\frac{1}{\lambda}=R\left(\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{f}}^{2}}-\frac{1}{{n}_{\text{i}}^{2}}\right)$ ? It is amazing how well a simple formula (disconnected originally from theory) could duplicate this phenomenon.
