I have some questions over quantum jumping/atomic electron transitioning? I have searched everywhere and either I couldn't find the right answers or I just got too confused.
How much energy is required to move an electron to a higher energy level? And what does this "amount of energy" depend on?
- For example, does the amount of energy required to excite an electron depend upon the electron's ground energy level? Or in another words does it require more energy if the electron's ground state in a higher energy level than if it is in a lower energy level?
Do all electrons jump the same distance (as in energy levels) when they are excited?
Please try to be clear as possible.
