Emission is a transition process from a higher energy level to a lower energy level. The energy in a transition depends on the distance between the energy levels: this means the transition with the greatest distance produces the largest energy.
A Bohr-model representation of the H atom is shown below with several electron transitions depicted by arrows:
Rank the emissions in terms of increasing energy.
