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 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...
