Hi I was wondering if somebody could help me with this question?

According to the Bohr model, what determines the color of light emitted when an electron moves from one energy level to another?


The color (wavelength) is determined by the change in energy level of the electron. See Planck's equation in your text...

E= h c/lambda

lambda= hc/E
