Atomic Spectra

Postby itzeelpadillaDis1A » Thu Nov 09, 2017 2:31 pm

What are some important trend we should on the atomic spectra? Like what wavelength has higher energy and things like that

Higher Frequency means higher energy, as can be told from the formula E=hv, where v is frequency. Because v and wavelength (λ) are inversely related in c=λ v, the larger the wavelength, the lower the frequency, and so the lower the energy.

Knowing the series may also be helpful. The Balmer series is associated with energy changes where n=2 and exists in the visible light spectrum. The Lyman series is associated with energy changes where n=1and exists in the UV spectrum. These series are for Hydrogen only.
