HW 1.A #11

Not sure what the question is even asking... I understand what the answer is saying but I don't understand the question (?) if anyone knows what I mean...

It is definitely a confusing question and I think it asks what is common with all the electrons found within a certain series. One thing is that they all have the same base energy level.

it's asking how the lines are related, in this case it's asking you to make a connection the the energy levels

I don't understand how the answer given answers the question. Can someone please explain? Why is grouping the series related to the base energy level?

Re: HW 1.A #11

This question is basically saying that all the lines in the Lyman Series end at n=1 and all the lines in the Balmer Series ends at n=2. So, UV lines which are part of the Lyman Series will always transition to/from the energy level n=1 and visible light which is part of the Balmer Series will transition to/from the energy level n=2.
