en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excited_state

If the photon has too much energy, the electron will cease to be bound to the atom, and the atom will become ionized. After excitation the atom may return to the ground state or a lower excited state, by emitting a photon with a characteristic energy. Emission of photons from atoms in various excited states leads to an ...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_state

The ground state of a quantum mechanical system is its lowest-energy state; the energy of the ground state is known as the zero-point energy of the system. An excited state is any state with energy greater than the ground state. In the quantum field theory, the ground state is usually called the vacuum state or the vacuum.

An excited state is an energy level of an atom, ion, or molecule in which an electron is at a higher energy level than its ground state. An electron is normally in its ground state, the lowest energy state available. After absorbing energy, it may jump from the ground state to a higher energy level, called an excited state.

Jan 26, 2016 ... If an electron ( e− ) configuration is not in the GROUND state, then it is in the EXCITED state. Sodium has 11 electrons. Here are 3 possible electron configurations: Ground state: 1s22s22p63s1 : no electrons are excited from their default configuration. Excited state "a": 1s22s22p63p1 : one 3s electron ...

When a valence electron absorbs energy, it enters what is known as an excited state. The excited state can commonly take the form of the electron jumping from its original energy level or orbital, also known as the ground state, to an empty orbital of a higher energy shell that is further away from the nucleus. The excited  ...

eg. Consider a carbon atom whose electron configuration is the following. The total energy of the electrons in this carbon atom can be lowered by transfering an electron from a 2P orbital to the 2S orbital. Therefore, this carbon atom is an excited-state carbon atom. see also ground-state atom. OCHEMPAL IS NOW IN THE ...

This condition is called the ground state. When one or more of an atom's electrons have absorbed energy, they can move to outer orbits, and the atom is then referred to as being “excited.” Excited states are generally not stable; as electrons drop from higher-energy to lower-energy levels, they emit… Read More  ...
