Which of the following is true for the transition of electrons from a higher energy to a lower energy state?
Choose one answer.
a. The greater the energy difference between the levels, the more is the wavelength of the photons emitted.
b. The greater the energy difference between the levels, the less is the wavelength of the photons emitted.
c. The greater the energy difference between the levels, the less is the frequency of the photons emitted.
d. The energy difference is not related to frequency or wavelength of the photons emitted.

    E=hf=hc/lambda

    lambda= hc/Energy

    Surely you can figure out what happens to lambda as energy changes.
