September 15, 2017 – Lecture 7 Rydberg equation: o N1= where electron starts, n2= where electrons ends up o Rydberg equation is a mathematical description to fit hydrogen’s atomic spectra o It describes the inverse wavelength o R= 1.096776 x 10 m 7 ‐1 Bohr equation: o Describes the energies of line spectra o The constant is different o The answer comes out in J o It’s N final minus N initial o They’re both related by E = hc/λ Problem: (Redo from Lecture 6): Use the Rydberg equation to find the wavelength (in Å) of the photon absorbed when an H atom undergoes a transition from n = 1 to
