Question

Calculate the frequency of the light emitted when an electron in a hydrogen atom makes each transition. a. n=4n=3n=4 \longrightarrow n=3 b. n=5n=1n=5 \longrightarrow n=1 c. n=5n=4n=5 \longrightarrow n=4 d. n=6n=5n=6 \longrightarrow n=5

Determine the frequency vv of emitted light if an electron from the hydrogen atom makes the transition in energy levels.

a. n=4n=3n = 4 \rightarrow n = 3

b. n=5n=1n = 5 \rightarrow n = 1

c. n=5n=4n = 5\rightarrow n = 4

d. n=6n=5n = 6\rightarrow n = 5

Solution: Use ΔEatom=ΔEfΔEi\Delta E_\text{atom} = \Delta E_\text{f} - \Delta E_\text{i} and E=hvE = hv.
