Balmer, Lyman, Paschen Series

Postby Phoebe Chen 4I » Wed Oct 24, 2018 4:19 pm

Do we need to explicitly know the Blamer, Lyman, and Paschen series for the test? For example do we need to know which each of their lowest energy levels are?

I haven't taken the test yet, but from my understanding, we are supposed to know the lowest energy level and the type of electromagnetic radiation each series represents.

I suggest just knowing which series responds to which energy level and nature of light, for example either visible or ultraviolet but I do not think it is necessary to know much more beyond that.

The balmer series results from electron transitions between high energy levels to an energy level that has a principal quantum number that equals 2, the lyman series is the same but with a principal quantum number of 1, and the paschen series is the same but with a principal quantum number of 3.
