The energy levels are discrete amounts of energy that the electron jumps to when it gets excited from that specific amount of energy. When the electron moves to a higher energy state, it becomes unstable, and emits the energy it just received to return back down to its stable ground state. The Balmer series uses visible light and has the lowest energy level for the e- set as n=2. The Lyman series uses UV light and has the lowest energy level for the e- set as n=1.
