1.57

Postby huntercrespo1C » Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:48 pm

Lines in the Balmer series of the hydrogen spectrum observed at 656.3, 486.1, 434.0 and 410.2 nm. What is the wave length of the next line in the series?
I understand that n1 is 2 because its the Balmer series but how do you get n2 is 7, shouldn’t it be 6?

It's not one of the problems required for test 2 so I would not be worried about it for now.

To answer your question anyway, the next line in the series would be n2=7 because 656.3 corresponds to n1=2 to n2=3, 486.1 corresponds to n1=2 to n2=4, 434.0 corresponds to n1=2 to n2=5, and 410.2 corresponds to n1=2 to n2=6.
