Homework Help: chem

What is the wavelength (in nm) of the line in the spectrum of the hydrogen atom that arises from the transition of the electron from the orbital with n =5 to the orbital with n = 2?

Note, the line corresponds to the energy of the photon that is emitted in the transition.


Find the de Broglie wavelength (in nm) associated with an electron that is moving with a velocity of 5330 km/s. The electron rest mass is 9.11 x 10-31 kg.

Note, electrons having this speed would need to be treated as waves in atoms because the wavelength is on the order of the size of atoms.


Please help! I got these wrong for some reason.
