Problem 7SAQ

Calculate the wavelength of light emitted when an electron in the hydrogen atom makes a transition from an orbital with n = 5 to an orbital with n = 3.

a)        1.28 x 10-6 m

b)        6.04 xi0-7m

c)        2.28 x 10-6 m

d)        1.55 x 10-19 m

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Element the simplest form of matter, building blocks to everything. Consists of mass number, atomic number, and element symbol.  Symbol made up of the first or first two letters of the element name.  Nucleus the small particle in middle of atom.  Proton positive charge, found in nucleus.  Neutron no charge, found in nucleus.  Electron negative charge, found in electron cloud/outside...
