The colour emitted during the transition and also the initial and the final electronic state for the line in 410.2 nm of the H atom in the Balmer series has to be identified. Concept introduction: Electronic transitions that take place in excited H atom is, 1. Lyman series: electronic transitions take place to the n = 1 level and it is in ultraviolet region. 2. Balmer series: electronic transitions take place from n > 2 to the n = 2 level and it is in visible region. 3. Ritz-Paschen series: electronic transitions take place from n > 3 to the n = 3 level and it is in infrared region. 4. Brackett series: electronic transitions take place from n > 4 to the n = 4 level. 5. Pfund series: electronic transitions take place from n > 5 to the n = 5 level Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc. Visible radiation in the wavelength of 400 nm to 700 nm . The wavelength region of violet color is 450 n m – 400 n m
