Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jimmy on Monday, March 16, 2009 at 9:39pm.

According to the quantum-mechanical model for the hydrogen atom, which of the following electron transitions would produce light with the longer wavelength:

2p --> 1s
or
3p --> 1s

I have the answer, which is 2p --> 1s, but can someone offer some help as to how this is determined?

Thanks for any help.
