electron energy question
« on: November 05, 2005, 09:40:58 AM »

electrons at orbitals closer to the nucleus have higher or lower energy compared to electrons at orbitals farther away from the nucleus?

Electrons near the nucleus have a greater mass-energy than those farther away.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Always start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

I always thought that the electrons closer to the nuclei have less energy. Thus when you excite them, making them rise to a higher level by giving them more energy then later they give off the energy in the form of light as they return to the lower levels. Or is mass-energy something way different?
