### Ryberg equation?

Why are not supposed to use the Ryberg equation? I find it easier.

I don't necessarily think you can't use the equation (not sure about exams), but the fundamental equation for the energy of an electron at a certain quantum number n, $E=\frac{-hR}{n^{2}}$, details the transition/direction of an electron much more.
