Homework Help: Chemistry(I'm sooo confused here!)

Posted by lavonne on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at 11:22am.

The Rydberg equation, with n1=1, predicts an ultraviolet series of spectral lines of atomic hydrogen. Which of the following wavelengths is not predicted by the equation: 1/ = (1.097 x 10(7) m - 1) x (1/n1(2)-1/n2(2)
a)182 nm
b)103 nm
c)97 nm
d) 95 nm
e) 91 nm
I know i posted this yesturday, but when I try to work this I'm not getting any of these choices so I don't know what I'm doing wrong!
We never did these in class, but they're on the homework so I need to know where I'm going wrong.
