Conceptual Test question

Postby Jaedyn_Birchmier3F » Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:05 am

One of the problems on the last test for the quantum world was talking about how a battery made of Neon only releases electrons at certain voltages and from this what can we tell about the energy levels of Neon. I wasn't really sure how to answer this because I know about work energy and how it relates to an electron being ejected from a metal, yet I don't know what it means in terms of the energy level of that electron.

Shells of an atom have discrete energy levels between shells, this question was discussing the energy it takes to get from one to the other.
