What is the wavelength of radiation emitted by a hydrogen atom in a transition from the n = 6 to the n = 5 energy level?

Try to use the Rydberg equation.

Solve for the energy at n=6 and energy at n=5. After finding these two numbers, subtract Energyfinal-Energyinitial. Once you find this difference, plug the answer into equation: wavelength=h(c)/E
