Homework Help: College Physics

Posted by Dave on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at 9:39pm.

I'm asked to find the shortest wavelength photon emitted for the paschen series for the hydrogen atom. I used the Rydberg equation and substituted the appropriate values.

Frequency= Rh(1/3^2)-(1/infinity^2)

I get an answer of 820 nm. My online homework program said this answer was wrong, but I feel pretty confident I'm doing this right. What am I doing wrong?
