### Spectral Series

If given the wavelength, how can you tell which series (Lyman, Balmer, etc.) a photon falls under?

Considering how the Balmer series is associated with visible light and the Lyman series is associated with UV light, wavelengths in the Balmer series should range from around 400 nm to 740 nm while wavelengths in the Lyman series should range from 10 nm to 400 nm.

### Re: Spectral Series

Each series correspond to a different range of wavelengths. When you calculate the wavelength, just match it to the range of the series.

### Re: Spectral Series

Each series has their own range of wavelengths. Once you've found the wavelength the photon's at, then you can just link them to whichever series involves that range.
