By looking at all of the lines in the spectrum of hydrogen atoms, an empirical model was derived that explains emission patterns of hydrogen atoms. The frequencies (or wavelength or energy) could be predicted based upon the Rydberg constant and two integers. One integer is meant to represent the initial energy state and the other integer is meant to represent the final energy state. The frequency (or wavelength or energy) was related to the change that occurred between these two energy states.
