Do electron energy levels increase at higher velocities, irrespective of distance from the atomic nucleus?
Or is it the shell level where it is that makes the energy level change only.
Does it have nothing to do with its speed
I think the electron can only speed up if it is far away from the nucleus, in a higher shell of 3, 4 or 5, I am not sure.
But does the energy level (electron voltage requirement to be absorbed by visible light) change as it speeds up.
I am grateful for your help, anything helps even a few words.
