# Electron Energy in a Many‑Electron Atom: What Values Determine It?

0 comment 208 views

The electron energy is what determines the energy of an electron in a many-electron atom. There are two values that you need to know for this calculation:

1) The number of electrons in the atom, which is known as “n.”

2) The total charge on the nucleus (Z).

The simplest case would be when there is only one electron in an atom with a charge of Z = 1. In this case, the electron’s energy would be given by E = -e(2/r), where e represents Coulomb’s constant and r represents the distance between the nucleus and its closest orbital level. This equation can also work for other cases, such as when there are more than 2 electrons in the atom.

### How would you go about solving these equations?

The answer is that there are many different ways to do this, but one of the most common methods involves what’s called a “particle in a box.” This technique takes advantage of an imaginary infinite-length wire with a nucleus at its center; electrons travel back and forth across the length of the wire like so:

As n goes up, E keeps increasing. When doing calculations for what values determine electron energy in atoms with multiples electrons (n > 0), it becomes more difficult because we need to take into account things such as spin states, angular momentum, etc., which I won’t get into here.

### What Values Determine Electron Energy in Atoms with Multiples (n > 0) electrons:

Electrons, which have higher n values than one, contribute more to the total potential of their atoms. This is because they have greater binding energies due to having more protons repelling them from moving any closer. These electrons share some amount of kinetic energy as well as potential energy owing to their opposite charges attracting each other, but it also relies on what orbital shape they reside within. For example ions like sodium or potassium tend to stay near the nucleus when they are not in motion because they have higher n values.

### Angular Momentum of Electrons:

Electron orbits surrounding the atom’s nucleus can either be circular or elliptical, depending on what type and what energy level it is at. Circular orbits allow electrons to maintain a fixed distance from one another due to their lower orbital energies as well as creating magnetic fields around them that also helps others stay away. Elliptical orbitals do not keep a fixed distance between each other so they will often collide with each other while moving closer together which causes what is known as “electron-hole pairs.” These electron-hole pairs lead to what is called thermal radiation through what produces photons when heated up by collisions (photon emission).

what does radiation mean for atoms and molecules? ** how can we define it as electromagnetic waves or particles, depending on how long they last. Is there any other way that I can describe them more easily like this one? what type of particle is light made out of ? What kind of spectrum do these types have with regard to frequencies/wavelengths/lengths etc.? “The earth’s atmosphere has been shown to absorb and reflect various frequencies of solar radiation and, consequently, what we perceive as visible light is actually a small fraction (<0.01%) of what the sun emits.”

Are these types also absorbed by other objects in space? “The earth’s atmosphere has been shown to absorb and reflect various frequencies of solar radiation and, consequently, what we perceive as visible light is actually a small fraction (<0.01%) of what the sun emits.” Can you give me an example with some numbers for how much energy each type can have? This could be possible if I knew what kind it was going to be: non‑relativistic or relativistic (particle) etc.?
