Textbook Problem

A wavelength of 4.653 μm is observed in a hydrogen spectrum for a transition that ends in the n f = 5 level. What was n i for the initial level of the electron?

To determine

The 'ni' for the transition occurred.

Explanation

Given info:

Wavelength =λ = 4.653 µm.

Final level = nf= 5.

Formula used:

Using:

1/λ=R(1/nf21/ni2) , where R is the Rydberg constant =

Calculation:

We have:

1λ=R(1nf21ni2)1λ=(R)(125
