When a gas for example is heated enough, the electrons do jump to higher energy level in atoms. When they return back to lower level they emit photon. How long is the time required for this transition from level to level? Where does the electron lurk between this time, if the time required for jump is finite? Is it possible to measure or theoretically predict that time? Is this question insensible just because I am thinking electron some odd way and do not understand it's nature right?
Re: How long lasts the jump of electron from one energy level to another?
