Select all that apply. It can stay in its original shell. It can drop down to a lower electron shell It can collide with the nucleus. It can move out to a higher electron shell. Submit Request Answer
Answer : Part B b.Attraction to the positively charged protons in the nucleus
- The protons are the positively charged particles which are known to be protons,where in the protons are located at the centre of the atom,where the total mass of the atom is configured.
- The Electrons are held within the atom by their attraction to the positively charged nucleus.
- When the electrons in the atom gets hit by the sunlight which is also known as the photon then the electrons move to the higher state.
- When the sunlight hits the eletrons of the cell then the electron move to the higher state by absorbing the quanta of energy the photon was carrying.
