Show that ( 13.6   eV ) / h c = 1.097 × 10 7   m = R (Rydberg's constant), as discussed in the text.

To determine

To prove

:13.6eVhc=1.097×107m=R , whereR= Rydberg's constant.

Explanation

Given Data:

Given13.6eVhc=1.097×107m=R ,

Formula Used:

Rydberg's constant is given as

R=13.6eVhc

Whereh= Planck's constant

c= Speed of light

Proof:

We havec=2.998×108m/s

h=6.626×1034J.s

Substituting the values, we get

R=13.6eV(6
