To which quantum level does the electron jump in H atom from the lowest level if it is given an energy corresponding to 99% of the ionisation potential?

Let level be 'n',then

                         [1-1/n2]=0.99

                       or,n=10

As you know E is proportional to ' 1/n2 ' & lowest level is n=1 with (ionisation potential) level being  infinity.You get the above form of equation.
