Spectropic Series

Postby gmerino_1F » Thu Oct 16, 2014 10:27 pm

Are we expected to know the name of a specific spectropic series that a transition belongs in? (For example Balmer series or Lyman series in exercise 1.7)

Hello!

Most of the problems are very "math-based," but I think it definitely doesn't hurt to know a general idea of the Balmer and Lyman Series! Just take a little time to memorize the most popular spectrums such as infrared, visible light, UV, and maybe x-ray and their general range of wavelength and frequency! I hope this helped!

I was a little confused about this as well, so I looked it up on the Google as well. What I found was that we can't be expected to know more than that each series shares the same value for n1. It would be also probably be prudent to memorize the n1 values for each series.

Knowing the concepts behind the math always helps to make the objective clearer.
