What is the smallest-wavelength line in the Balmer series? Is it in the visible part of the spectrum?

To determine

The smallest wavelength line in the Balmer series. And also, if it is in the visible part of the spectrum.

Explanation

Given Data:

Given Balmer series.

Formula Used:

The relationship between the wavelength and energy level is given as

1λ=R(1nf21ni2)

Whereλ= Wavelength

R= Rydberg Constant

nf,ni = Energy levels

Calculation:

We have

  ni=

  nf=2

  R=1.097×107m1

Thus, wavelength is calculated as

1λ=1
