An isolated atom of a certain element emits light of wavelength 520. nm when the atom falls from its fifth excited state into its second excited state. The atom emits a photon of wavelength 410. nm when it drops from its sixth excited state into its second excited state. Find the wavelength of the light radiated when the atom makes a transition from its sixth to its fifth excited state.
