Ans. (1) $\mathrm{E}=\phi+\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{mv}^{2}$ $\Rightarrow \frac{\mathrm{hc}}{\lambda}=\frac{\mathrm{hc}}{\lambda_{0}}+\frac{1}{2} \mathrm{mv}^{2}$ $\Rightarrow \mathrm{v}^{2}=\frac{2 \mathrm{hc}}{\mathrm{m}}\left[\frac{1}{\lambda}-\frac{1}{\lambda_{0}}\right] \Rightarrow \mathrm{v}=\sqrt{\frac{2 \mathrm{hc}}{\mathrm{m}}\left[\frac{1}{\lambda}-\frac{1}{\lambda_{0}}\right]}$ $\Rightarrow \mathrm{v}=\sqrt{\frac{2 \mathrm{hc}}{\mathrm{m}}\left[\frac{\lambda_{0}-\lambda}{\lambda \lambda_{0}}\right]}$

Ans. (3) $\Delta \mathrm{E}=\mathrm{hv}$ $\mathrm{v}=\frac{\Delta \mathrm{E}}{\mathrm{h}}$ $\mathrm{v}=\frac{495.5 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{Joule}}{6.023 \times 10^{23}} \times \frac{1}{6.626 \times 10^{-34}}$ $\mathrm{v}=1.24 \times 10^{15} \mathrm{sec}^{-1}$
Q. Which of the following is the energy of a possible excited state of hydrogen? (1) –3.4 eV (2) +6.8 eV (3) +13.6 eV (4) –6.8 eV [JEE-Main(offline) 2015]
Ans. (1) For H-atom, (Z = 1) $\mathrm{E}_{\mathrm{n}}=-13.6 \times \frac{\mathrm{Z}^{2}}{\mathrm{n}^{2}} \mathrm{eV}$ \begin{aligned} \therefore \text { So for } \mathrm{E}_{1} &=-13.6 \mathrm{eV} \\ \mathrm{E}_{2} &=-3.4 \mathrm{eV} \end{aligned}

Ans. (1) As electron of charge 'e' is passed through 'V' volt, kinetic energy of electron becomes = 'eV' As wavelength of $e^{-}$ wave = $(\lambda)=\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\sqrt{2 \mathrm{m} \cdot \mathrm{K} \cdot \mathrm{E}}}$ $\lambda=\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\sqrt{2 \mathrm{meV}}}$ $\therefore \quad \frac{\mathrm{h}}{\lambda}=\sqrt{2 \mathrm{meV}}$
