please could you tell me how i would draw an hydrogen atom which has only one electron and describe why it has so many spectral lines,

I have studied my text books but cant seem to figure it out, many thanks in advance

bex--You posted a question withing the last day or so about an alcohol and what it formed during polymerization. I posted an answer for Sarah, below this post. If you will scroll to that question from Sarah (Urgent is in the subject line) you can find the answer.
