Rydberg Constant

Postby RichardValdez1L » Thu Apr 26, 2018 1:06 am

For the Rydberg Constant are we supposed to be using 3.29 x 10^15 Hz, or 1.09 x 10^7 m^-1. An explanation would be much appreciated!

I believe we're using 3.29 x 10^15 Hz

This website helped me understand the different constants : https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-impor ... d-its-uses

on the cover page of the first exam, it is listed as 3.29 x 10^15 hz. so I'm assuming we use that one.

I'd recommend doing the homework and studying with the equation sheet on his website. Better to use the resources he's gonna give us on the test(: and yes, on that it says Rydberg's constant is 3.289x10^15. Hope this helps!

3.29 x 10^15 is most helpful to us in the equations we're doing currently because it cancels out with the other units we're using. The other variation of the constant will probably be relevant in other contexts

To answer your question, the Ryberg constant is R=3.28984 x 10^ 15 HZ.
You don't have to remember it though, because the formulas will be provided during the Midterm/Final Exam.
I hope this helps :)
