Suppose a sample of hydrogen gas is excited to the n=5 level. As the atoms return to the ground state (Balmer series), they emit light.
a. How many lines are there in the spectrum?
b. Draw an energy-level diagram indicating theses transitions.
c. Calculate the three lowest-energy transitions, and indicate them on your drawing

Same formulas, same process as earlier problems. Post your work if you get stuck.
