Rydberg Equation

Postby NatBrown1I » Mon Oct 22, 2018 9:08 am

What is the difference between the Rydberg equation and E= -hR/(n)^2?

The second equation is to calculate energy of an electron at t a certain level. The Rydberg equation measures the frequency of energy released when electrons move between levels.

The Rydberg equation is just a derivation from that formula, but the Rydberg doesn't show how it relates to energy and energy levels. You can use the E=hR/(n2) by doing a deltaE equation, doing a E=hR/(n2final) - hR/(n2initial). You can use this equation to find the energy level by isolating an n value.
