If an electron has absorbed energy and has shifted to a higher energy level the electron is said to be what?

This electron is called excited.


Does an excited electron move up or down an energy level?

The excited electron move up.


What happens when an electron moves from a higher energy level to a lower energy level?

Its energy level increases, it becomes more excited, and it moves more quickly. As an electron moves from a higher energy level to a lower energy level, energy is released and a specific color of light is emitted for each element.


What state is an electron in when is has moved from a lower energy level to a higher energy level?

excited


What happens to an electron when it gains energy?

it get excited and goes to higher energy level.


What is meant by excited state of an electron?

When the electrons are at higher energy level,they are said to be excited state.


As an electron in an atom moves from the ground state to the excited state the electron?

The electron gains energy as it moves to a higher energy level


What does the electron do when an atom emits a photon?

moves from an 'excited' higher energy level, to a lower energy level.


Is a line spectrum produced when an electron moves from one energy level to a higher energy level?

ground to excited


What is meant by the excited state of a molecule?

An electron from an inner energy level may move to an outer energy level


What is happening within the hydrogen atom to create emission lines?

The electron in the atom becomes excited as something adds energy to it, moving it to a higher energy level. When the electron moves back to the normal energy level, called a ground state, it emits light of a given frequency.


When a molecule is excited by light?

An electron from an inner energy level may move to another level.


When does an atom produce light?

When an electron falls from an excited level to a lower energy level, the energy will be released as photons of light.


What meant by ground state and excited state?

A ground state is an outer orbital electron of an element that is at its lowest possible energy level. The electron in an excited state has a higher energy level than a ground state electron. The average distance from the nucleus is greater in the excited state than in the ground state.


Would an electron have to absorb or release energy to jump from the second energy level to the third energy level?

It has to absorb energy so as to get excited from second to third energy level.


What is quantum of energy?

A quantum of energy is a specific amount of energy given off when an excited electron drops an energy level.


If you move an electron in an atom from a low energy level to a higher energy level within the atom the atom is known as what?

an Excited Atom


When an electron jumps up to a higher energy level the atom is in it's?

Excited state


When an electron jumps up to a higher energy level that atom is in its what?

The atom is in its Excited State.


Which electron configuration represents atom in the excited state?

Excited electrons are on higher levels of the electron clouds. It takes more energy to get them to the higher level, and energy is lost when they fall. When that energy is lost, a an x-ray photon is emitted.


What is released in the process of an atom's electron moving from an excited level to a lower energy level?

A photon, one for each event.


What is the relationship between the energy differences of orbits in an atom and the light emitted by the atom?

as the electron gets excited to the excited level by gaining certain amount of energy which is equal to the difference in the energies of its initial and final energy states. After a certain period of time the electron jumps back tom lower level by emitting same amount of energy as the difference between the energy of the upper level (the level electron jumped off) and that of lower level. So the energy differences of orbits in an atom and the light emitted by the atom is same


What is it called when electron gains enough energy to move farther away from the nucleus?

if an electron gains enough energy it jumps to a higher energy level. when this happens the atom is in an "excited" state.


What causes an atom to emit light?

a photon is emitted when an excited electron falls to a lower energy level.


What happened if the electron is excited?

As you may know, there are different 'levels' in which an electron might be outside the nucleus of an atom. If an electron receives a photon of a certain wavelength it will absorb the energy and jump onto the next level or so. However, electrons do not like to be excited therefore it releases the energy again and jumps down to a lower level.
