    Excitation by collison of another electron:

    Does the electron need to have exactly the same energy as an excitation energy in order for excitation to occur?

    When a electron let's say 3eV comes in a collides with a electron which needs 3eV to excite, what happens to the electron that has come in and lost all it's kinetic energy to excite the other one?
