H-Atom Emperical Equation

Postby Maya_Peterson1C » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:44 pm

We learned in class that the equation E{n}= -(hR)/n^2 was only used for Hydrogen atoms because it was based on experimental data, but how different would an empirical equation like this be for other atoms?

i thought other equations have similar like formats with much more complex values (even for atoms with only 1 electron, not to mention the ones with multiple electrons), but in general we don't have to know that for this class.

Since other atoms have more than one electron, determining energy would depend on both distance from nucleus and electron-electron repulsion.
