We are asked which electromagnetic wave--(i), (ii), or (iii)--is associated with electronic transition A?
↑ gap transition → ↑ Energy → ↓ wavelength → ↓ gap wave peaks
Consider the three electronic transitions in a hydrogen atom shown here, labeled A, B, and C.
Three electromagnetic waves, all drawn on the same scale, are also shown. Each corresponds to one of the transitions. Which electromagnetic wave--(i), (ii), or (iii)--is associated with electronic transition A?
