Step 1

From Rydberg equation, the energy of electron transition can be calculated as given below. help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1 -RH 1 1 hc 1 1 -hcR 2 n 1 E -2.18x 10-18 1 2 2 n Where,h Planck's constant =6.626 x 10-34 Js c Velocity of light=3x105 m / s Rydberg constant =1.0974x 107 m R H fullscreen
Step 2

Here, ni is 7 and nf is 5. Now, putting all the values in the above energy equati...
