Electron Transitions

Postby Claudia Luong 4K » Sun Oct 28, 2018 11:21 pm

I was doing the problems on the worksheet that one of the UAs posted (worksheet #2), and I need help on number 7. The problem is "An excited hydrogen atom emits light with a frequency of 1.14x10 Hz to reach the energy level for which n=4. In what principle quantum level did the electron begin?" I keep getting n=3 as my final answer, but the solution says the answer is n=6. Anyone else have this problem too or am I doing something wrong?
