Atomic Energy Levels: Experimental evidence

In a vacuum tube filled with mercury vapor, as shown in the figure, electrons are emitted from a heated cathode through thermionic emission. The electrons are thenaccelerated toward a positively charged grid; immediately behind the grid is a collecting plate. Suppose that the collector is held at a small negative voltage withrespect to the grid. Will the accelerated electrons reach the collecting plate?
