### rydberg equation

Hi,
Are we allowed to actually use Rydbreg's equation or do we have to solve these types of problems the way Lavelle taught us in class?

During the Dino Nugget Review Session, it was stated that the Rydberg equation can be used for the calculations, but if you get the answer wrong, you will not receive partial credit for your work. Perhaps the best bet is solving the question Dr. Lavelle's way and using the Rydberg equation to check your answer.

What's the way Lavelle taught us how to solve it?
