### H-Atom

What does it mean when they say that the energies on the right of an expression have to be proportional to hR/n2, to have accounted for Rydberg’s formula?

### Re: H-Atom

I believe it states that the wavelength and frequency are inversely proportional; as one increases, the other decreases. So both sides of the expression have to be equal energies to cancel one another out, so that you are left with Rydberg's formula in the end.
