The hydrogen atomic emission spectrum includes a UV line with a wavelength of 92.3 nm.

Is this line associated with a transition between different excited states or between an excited state and the ground state?

What is the value of n1 of this transition?

What is the wavelength of the longest- wavelength photon that a ground-state hydrogen can absorb?
