Homework Help: Chemistry

Calculate the level from which the electron fell, n2, for the hydrogen line you observed.

wavelength (lambda) = 400 nm
n1 = 2
RH = 2.18 x 10^-18

I keep having trouble with finding n2. Is the above given right to plug in for 1/(lambda) = RH (1/n1^2 - n2^2)

thank you for any help
