Problem: What is the wavelength (in nm) of the least energetic spectral line in the visible series of the H atom?

FREE Expert Solution
  • H atoms are capable of exhibiting several series of spectral atoms depending on the spectral region

  • The least energetic spectral line in the visible series can be obtained when an electron jumps from n = 2 to n = 3

  • Use the Rydberg equation to find the wavelength (λ) where:
