### Atomic Spectra

Posted:

**Sat Oct 12, 2019 12:35 pm**Write the equation that allows one to calculate the electronic energy levels for the hydrogen atom. Do the calculated energies compare favorably with empirical observation (spectroscopic results)?

I know the equation is E=-hR/n^2, however, I am confused on what the second part of the question is asking.
