### Energy Function

In the equation: E= -hR/n^2 (solves for the energy of electrons as a function of n)
What are the variables and how do they contribute to finding the energy of the electron?

### Re: Energy Function

In the equation E= -hR/n^2
h, represent Plank's constant which is 6.626x10^-34J/s
R, is Rydberg's constant which is 3.29x10^15 Hz
n, is the number of the energy level of an electron (this is the quantized value)

Overall, this contributes to finding the amount of energy contained in one electron while in a state. Also, notice how the Hz (which is also 1s^-1) in Rydberg's constant cancels with the second in Plank's constant, leaving you with an answer in Joules (J) which is energy.
