The region where Lyman series and Balmer series lies in the electromagnetic spectrum has to be identified. Concept introduction: Electronic transitions that take place in excited H atom is, i. Lyman series: electronic transitions take place to the n = 1 level and it is in ultraviolet region. ii. Balmer series: electronic transitions take place from n > 2 to the n = 2 level and it is in visible region. iii. Ritz-Paschen series: electronic transitions take place from n > 3 to the n = 3 level and it is in infrared region. iv. Brackett series: electronic transitions take place from n > 4 to the n = 4 level. v. 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 lies in the wavelength of 400 nm to 700 nm whereas ultraviolet radiation lies in the region between 100 nm and 400 nm

Chapter 6, Problem 48GQ
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The region where Lyman series and Balmer series lies in the electromagnetic spectrum has to be identified.

Concept introduction:

  • Electronic transitions that take place in excited H atom is,
  1. i. Lyman series: electronic transitions take place to the n=1 level and it is in ultraviolet region.
  2. ii. Balmer series: electronic transitions take place from n>2 to the n=2 level and it is in visible region.
  3. iii. Ritz-Paschen series: electronic transitions take place from n>3 to the n=3 level and it is in infrared region.
  4. iv. Brackett series: electronic transitions take place from n>4 to the n=4 level.
  5. v. Pfund series: electronic transitions take place from n>5 to the n=5 level
