Before quantum mechanics was developed, Johannes Rydberg developed an equation that predicted the wavelengths 1l2 in the atomic spectrum of hydrogen: 1>l = R11 >m2 - 1 > n2 2 In this equation R is a constant and m and n are integers. Use the quantum-mechanical model for the hydrogen atom to derive the Rydberg equation.
