Spectral Lines and Series

Postby Ria Nawathe 1C » Mon Oct 12, 2020 12:38 pm

Why do spectral lines in the same series (Balmer series, Lyman series, etc.) always represent transitions ending with the same final energy level?

The spectral series (Balmer, Lyman etc.) are grouped by the electrons transitioning from excited states to the specified quantum level. So they are just grouped like that by definition.
