A hydrogen like atom in ground state absorbs `n` photons having the same energy and it emits exactly `n` photons when electronic transition takes place. Then the energy of the aborbed photon may be?

hi Divyjot,

for the electronic transition the minimum energy required is 10.2 eV.

since there are exactly n photon emissions the energy of the absorbed photon must be greater than 10.2eV

therefore energy of absorned photon>10.2 eV
