Hydrogen atoms absorb energy so that the electrons are excited to the energy level n = 7. Electrons then undergo these transitions:

A. n=7 → n=1
B. n=7 → n=6
C. n=2 → n=1

Which transition will produce the photon with the highest frequency ?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given information:

The transitions of an electron are taking place from n = 7.


Step 2

The energy can be expressed as the product of a constant that is plank’s constant(h) and frequency(ν). The mathematical expression for this is given as:

E hv
