Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Candace on Sunday, February 8, 2009 at 4:35pm.

I am confused on how to even start this problem...

A ground state H atom absorbs a photon of wavelength 94.91 nm, and its electron attains a higher energy level. The atom then emits two photons: one of wavelength 1281 nm to reach an intermediate level, and a second to reach the ground state.
a) What higher level (n=?) did the electron reach?
b) What intermediate level (n=?) did the electron reach?
c) What was the wavelength of the second photon emitted?
