The electron in the n = 5 level of a hydrogen atom emits a photon with a wavelength of 1280 nm. To what energy level does the electron move?

  • chemistry - ,

    1/wavelength = (2.180 x 10^-18/hc)x(1/n1^2-1/n2^2)
    n1 = unknown
    n2 = 5

    did you find that electron actually moved or did it stay in place?

    A hydrogen Atom makes a transition between two energy states and emits a photon with a wavelength of 434.2nm. What is the frequency? Does anyone know how to do this?

  • chemistry - ,

    3*10^8 / 4.342*10^-7 = frequency (units are seconds^-1)
