Textbook Problem

By calculating its wavelength, show that the first line in the Lyman series is UV radiation.

To determine

To prove:

The first line in the Lyman series is UV radiation by calculating the wavelength.

Explanation

Given Data:

The size of the nucleus is about1015m.

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

Proof:

We have

  ni=2

  nf=1

  R=1.097×107m1

Thus, wavelength is calculated as

1λ=1.097×107m1(112122)

1λ=1
