What does n stand for in energy levels (I thought it was the principal quantum number. Why is the ionisation energy the energy required to remove an electron from the ground state (n=1)? I thought the ionisation energy was the energy required to remove and electron from the outermost energy level, not the ground state energy level (n=1). Is there a difference between the ground state of electrons and atoms?
