We will extend this to a general rotational motion to find quantized rotational energy of a diatomic molecule assuming it to be rigid. The rule to be applied is Bohr’s quantization condition.

Q. A diatomic molecule has moment of inertia I. By Bohr’s quantization condition its rotational energy in the nth level (n =0 is not allowed) is $(\mathrm{A}) \frac{1}{\mathrm{n}^{2}}\left(\frac{\mathrm{h}^{2}}{8 \pi^{2} \mathrm{I}}\right)$ $(\mathrm{B}) \frac{1}{\mathrm{n}}\left(\frac{\mathrm{h}^{2}}{8 \pi^{2} \mathrm{I}}\right)$ $(\mathrm{C}) \mathrm{n}\left(\frac{\mathrm{h}^{2}}{8 \pi^{2} \mathrm{I}}\right)$ $(\mathrm{D}) \mathrm{n}^{2}\left(\frac{\mathrm{h}^{2}}{8 \pi^{2} \mathrm{I}}\right)$ [JEE 2010]
Ans. (D) $\mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{n}}=\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{I} \omega^{2}=\frac{(\mathrm{l} \omega)^{2}}{2 \mathrm{l}}=\frac{(\mathrm{nh} / 2 \pi)^{2}}{2 \mathrm{l}}=\frac{\mathrm{n}^{2} \mathrm{h}^{2}}{8 \pi^{2} \mathrm{I}}$
Q. It is found that the excitation frequency from ground to the first excited state of rotation for the CO molecule is close to $\frac{4}{\pi} \times 10^{11} \mathrm{Hz}$ Hz. Then the moment of inertia of CO molecule about its center of mass is close to $\left[\text { Take } \mathrm{h}=2 \pi \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js}\right)$ (A) $2.76 \times 10^{-46} \mathrm{kg} \mathrm{m}^{2}$ (B) $1.87 \times 10^{-46} \mathrm{kg} \mathrm{m}^{2}$ (C) $4.67 \times 10^{-47} \mathrm{kg} \mathrm{m}^{2}$ (D) $1.17 \times 10^{-47} \mathrm{kg} \mathrm{m}^{2}$ [JEE 2010]
Ans. (B)

In a CO molecule, the distance between C (mass = 12 a.m.u.) and O (mass = 16 a.m.u.), where 1 a.m.u. $=\frac{5}{3} \times 10^{-27} \mathrm{kg},$ is close to (A) $2.4 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{m}$ (B) $1.9 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{m}$ (C) $1.3 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{m}$ (D) $4.4 \times 10^{-11} \mathrm{m}$ [JEE 2010]
Ans. (C) Moment of inertia of CO molecule about centre of mass : $\mathrm{I}=\mu \mathrm{r}^{2}$ where $\mu=\frac{\mathrm{m}_{1} \mathrm{m}_{2}}{\mathrm{m}_{1}+\mathrm{m}_{2}}$
Q. The wavelength of the first spectral line in the Balmer series of hydrogen atom is 6561 Å. The wavelength of the second spectral line in the Balmer series of singly-ionized helium atom is ? [JEE 2011]
Ans. (A)
Q. The radius of the orbit of an electron in a Hydrogen-like atom is 4.5 a0, where a0 is the Bohr radius. Its orbital angular momentum is $\frac{3 \mathrm{h}}{2 \pi}$. It is given that h is Planck constant and R is Rydberg constant. The possible wavelength (s), when the atom de-excites, is (are) :- (A) $\frac{9}{32 \mathrm{R}}$ (B) $\frac{9}{16 \mathrm{R}}$ (C) $\frac{9}{\text { sR }}$ (D) $\frac{4}{3 \mathrm{R}}$ [JEE Advanced-2013]
Ans. (A,C) for $\mathrm{n}=2$ to $\mathrm{n}=1 \quad \frac{1}{\lambda}=4 \mathrm{R}\left[\frac{1}{1}-\frac{1}{4}\right] \Rightarrow \lambda=\frac{3}{\mathrm{R}}$
Q. Consider a hydrogen atom with its electron in the nth orbital. An electromagnetic radiation of wavelength 90 nm is used to ionize the atom. If the kinetic energy of the ejected electron is 10.4 eV, then the value of n is (hc = 1242 eV nm). [JEE Advanced-2015]
Ans. 2 $\mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{Ph}}=\frac{\mathrm{hc}}{\lambda}=\frac{1242}{90}=13.8 \mathrm{eV}$ $\mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{Ph}}=\Delta \mathrm{E}+(\mathrm{K.E.})$ $13.8=\Delta \mathrm{E}+10.4$ $\Delta E=3.4 \mathrm{eV}$ so electron initially was in n = 2
Q. Highly excited states for hydrogen like atoms (also called Rydberg states) with nuclear charge Ze are defined by their principal quantum number n, where n >> 1. Which of the following statement(s) is (are) true? (A) Relative change in the radii of two consecutive orbitals does not depend on Z (B) Relative change in the radii of two consecutive oribitals varies as 1/n (C) Relative change in the energy of two consecutive orbitals varies as $1 / \mathrm{n}^{3}$ (D) Relative change in the angular momenta of two consecutive orbitals varies as 1/n [JEE Advanced-2016]
Ans. (A,B,D) As radius $\mathrm{r} \propto \frac{\mathrm{n}^{2}}{\mathrm{z}}$ as energy $\mathrm{E} \propto \frac{\mathrm{z}^{2}}{\mathrm{n}^{2}}$

An electron in a hydrogen atom undergoes a transition from an orbit with quantum number $\mathrm{n}_{\mathrm{i}}$ to another with quantum number $\mathrm{n}_{\mathrm{f}} \cdot \mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{i}}$ and $\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{f}}$ are respectively the initial and final potential energies of the electron. If $\frac{\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{i}}}{\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{f}}}=6.25$, then the smallest possible $\mathbf{n}_{\mathrm{f}}$ is. [JEE Advanced-2017]
