Final 2015 Q2A

What is considered an empirical relationship and what is a theoretical relationship? and why is the Bohr equation referred to as an empirical relationship?
Thanks!

As the question states, this equation from the experimentally observed H-atom line spectrum, so it is empirical since it is based on observation rather than simply theory.
