comment Definition of charges
Well using your definition it does have an excess of electrons; there are no other counterparts to neutralize it so there is an excess of exactly 1 electron?

comment Average kinetic energy of molecules hitting a surface
@JonCuster It's something I've seen in both Thermodynamics textbooks and in my lecturers notes; would you mind proving its invalidity?

comment Average kinetic energy of molecules hitting a surface
@CarlWitthoft It is a fact that I am given, the question as is identically: "Using the results of Q3.3, show that for a gas obeying the Maxwellian distribution, the average energy of all the molecules is $(3/2)k_{B}T$, but the average energy of those hitting the surface is $2k_{B}T$" Where in Q3.3 I showed that the speed distribution was defined as: $$\widetilde{f}(v)\:\mathrm{d}v = \frac{4v^{2}}{\sqrt{\pi}v_{th}}\exp\left(-\frac{v^{2}}{v_{th}^{2}}\right)\: \mathrm{d}v$$ And calculated that generally: $$\langle v^{n} \rangle = \frac{2v_{th}^{n}\Gamma(\frac{3+n}{2})}{\sqrt{\pi}}$$

comment Calculating Quantum number from initial conditions
Thank you very much for your answer; it is very interesting and corresponds to what I thought (and have been taught via books etc.) but I was specifically given a question with these values and told to calculate $n_{r}$ of the particle, is there no way to do this? Thanks again!!
