The one that the answers are given or the one that will be turned in?

Please post the details of the questions such that others (including TAs) can understand the question immediately.

Alright so we are referring to "An excited hydrogen atom emits light with a frequency of 1.14x10^14 Hz to reach the energy level for which n = 4. In what principle quantum level did the electron begin?" If yes, then I can explain how to do the question. So first we know that the v(frequency)=1.14x10^14Hz and that Rydbergs equation gives us v=R(1/(n-final)^2 - 1/(n-initial)^2). And we know that n=4 is the final energy level. Plugging in for known numbers and constants, we achieve 1.14x10^14 Hz = 3.28984x10^15Hz(1/16-1/(n-initial)). After doing some algebra and pure calculator work, we eventuall get the value of the initial n or energy level. (6)
