### Atomic Spectra - Rydberg Constant, Balmer Series, Lyman Series

Hello!

Is the original formula for the equation, which includes the Rydberg constant, to find v (frequency) something that will be tested, or be really taken note of? I did not hear about Rydberg's constant nor the Balmer and Lyman series during lecture today, but I want to make sure if I should really take this note down.

Thank you!

Yes, you should concentrate on everything that we cover in lecture until the specified date in the course reader. That includes any recommended problems from the text book.
