Quantum Numbers for H-Atom and other atoms

Postby DTingey_1C » Sun Nov 17, 2019 6:45 pm

What is the difference between the energy of an e- in H-atom orbitals and the orbitals in an atoms with multiple e-?

I'm not sure if I'm interpreting your question correctly, but an electron in a hydrogen atom only occupies the 1s orbital. After 2 electrons, multi-electron atoms will fill 2s, 2p, and so on. These orbitals hold electrons of higher energy than what the electrons of hydrogen atoms occupy.
