Binding energy of electron MCQs with Answers

Binding energy of electron MCQs

According to Bohr’s postulates when an electron revolves around the nucleus, the centripetal force required for the circular motion of electron is provided by electrostatic force of attraction between the negatively charged electron and the positively charged nucleus. So that, the energy of electron is inversely proportional to square of principal quantum number. The formula for the energy by which electron in nth orbit is bonded with nucleus is as,

Now to remove electron from the orbit we need to provide the same amount of energy in opposite direction. The minimum energy required to make electron free from the nucleus, is called Binding energy of electron.

This energy is also called ionization energy of hydrogen atom.
