# Problem: The Lyman series of emission lines of the hydrogen atom are those for which nf = 1.Calculate the wavelengths of the first three lines in the Lyman series-those for which ni =2, 3, and 4.

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the wavelengths of the first three lines in the Lyman series-those for which ni =2, 3, and 4.

For this problem, we shall use the formula below:

$\overline{)\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{\lambda }}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{097}}{\mathbf{×}}{{\mathbf{10}}}^{{\mathbf{7}}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{1}\mathbf{-}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{n}}^{\mathbf{2}}}\mathbf{\right)}}$
