Homework Help: General Chemistry

Posted by Confused on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 10:25am.

An electron in a hydrogen atom relaxes to the n = 4 level, emitting light of 114 THz. What is the value of n for the level in which the electron originated?

I am halfway through, but uncertain as to how to simplify the problem to completion.

(6.63 x 10^-34 J x s)(1.14 x 10^14 s^-1)= -2/18 x 10^-18 J x [1/4^2 - 1/ninitial^2)

Thank you!
