how do i calculate the wavelength of light emitted by a hydrogen atom?

  • chemistry -

    Do you know the shells involved in the electron movement. If so, then
    E = 3.18 x 10^18 J [(1/n12) - (1/n22)]

  • chemistry -

    typo.
    That 3.18 x 10^18 should be
    2.18 x 10^-18
    The answer is in units of Joules/photon. That is for one transition of one electron.
