Chapter 42Atomic Physics
Importance of theHydrogen Atom
The hydrogen atom is the only atomicsystem that can be solved exactly
Much of what was learned in thetwentieth century about the hydrogenatom, with its single electron, can beextended to such single-electron ionsas He
and Li
More Reasons the HydrogenAtom is Important
The hydrogen atom proved to be an idealsystem for performing precision tests of theory against experiment
Also for improving our understanding of atomicstructure
The quantum numbers that are used tocharacterize the allowed states of hydrogencan also be used to investigate more complexatoms
This allows us to understand the periodic table
