Emission of radiation by a change of bound electron energy levels is generally more probable if the wave functions are
 One even and one odd
 Somewhat similar

True or False: A state which is a combination of states with different energies can be a stationary state.
False

What can we say about fermions?
 An electron is an example
 A proton is an example
