### Rydberg formula

What is the Rydberg formula? A problem on the homework asks to use this formula to calculate wavelength radiation

### Re: Rydberg formula

The Rydberg formula is used to predict the wavelength of light from when an electron is moving in between different energy levels of an atom. This is the formula: 1/λ = RZ2(1/n12 - 1/n22). Youll have to look up what the formula looks like because I cant paste it to look correctly haha.
