According to the quantum-mechanical model for the hydrogen atom, which electron transition produces light with longer wavelength: 2p to 1s or 3p to 1s?
Step 1 of 3
2p--1s would be the longer wavelength
The lower the energy the longer the wavelength.
The higher the energy the shorter the wavelength.
Blue light has more energy than red light.
dropping from 3p to 1s is...
