### Bohr Freq Cond relation to Spectroscopy

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could please help explain how the Bohr equation specifically (V=(Change in E)/h) relates to the origin of the lines on a spectroscopic analysis and how we derive them from this equation. Thanks!

E=hv can be applied to describe the energy released by a given photon from an atom. The energy of a released photon correlates to its frequency and thereby its wavelength, so the wavelength emitted can be deduced using E=hv, and this generates the lines you see in emission spectra. I don't recall going over a derivation of the equation in class so I'd assume we don't need to know that.
