1)Five possible transitions for a hydrogen atom are listed below: Select whether the atom gains or loses energy for each transition.
Loses Gains ni = 6; nf = 4
Loses Gains ni = 4; nf = 2
Loses Gains ni = 5; nf = 3
Loses Gains ni = 2; nf = 5
Loses Gains ni = 5; nf = 7
b. Find the transition where the atom gains the most energy. How much energy does the atom gain?
