Spectral Series

Postby Andrew Wang 1C » Tue Oct 13, 2020 2:28 pm

I was going over the solution to #15 in Focus 1A of the textbook, which said that each spectral series has its own lower energy level (Lyman is n=1, Balmer n=2, etc.). So this got me curious if each of the spectral series also corresponds with one region of the electromagnetic spectrum?

The series do have specific ranges on the spectrum, but they don't correspond with one region such as UV or visible light. For example the Balmer series ranges from 365 nm to ~656 nm.

I have a hard time explaining it so I put a URL to a graph that makes this more understandable: https://haygot.s3.amazonaws.com/questions/365508_171741_ans.gif Hope it helps!
