I previously posted a question about reading the model for the Balmer and Lyman series. one of the textbook problems asks "What is common to the lines within a series that makes grouping them together logical?" but I'm not sure how to even read the model... does anyone know how to answer this?

Hello,

For the Lyman series, they have a common lower energy level of n=1 (meaning when electron's come down from an excited state, they return to that energy level). For the Balmer it is n=2, Bohr n=3, and Brackett n=4. Remember however, this is only for hydrogen, other atoms have different series that don't always fall in the ones I just listed.

Hope this helps!
