An electron ps from the 6th to te 3rd energy level in the hydrogen atom:
a) calculate the wavelength
b) calculate the frequency
c) calculate te enrgy
d) into which spectral series would the photon be grouped?

(i really just need to formulas, then i could solve myself...)

  • Chemistry -

    1/wavelength = R(1/3^2 - 1/6^2)
    R = Rydberg constant.

    b) c = wavelength*frequency
    c) E = h*frequency
    d) You can answer this after you know the wavelength.
