Chemistry (Electrons in Atoms)

What is the wavelength of the emitted photon, when the electron in the hydrogen atom makes a transition from the ni = 5 state to the nf = 3 state?

  • Chemistry (Electrons in Atoms) -

    (1/wavelength) = R(1/3^2 - 1/5^2)
    R = Rydberg constant.

    is the answer 780373.3333

  • Chemistry (Electrons in Atoms) -

    No but I think it's close to the reciprocal of that number.
    1/wavelength = 0.07111(R)
