Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The initial and the final electronic state for the line F 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. 1. Lyman series: electronic transitions take place to the n=1 level and it is in ultraviolet region.
  2. 2. Balmer series: electronic transitions take place from n>2 to the n=2 level and it is in visible region.
  3. 3. Ritz-Paschen series: electronic transitions take place from n>3 to the n=3 level and it is in infrared region.
  4. 4. Brackett series: electronic transitions take place from n>4 to the n=4 level.
  5. 5. Pfund series: electronic transitions take place from n>5 to the n=5 level
Explanation

In Balmer series, the electronic transitions take place from n>2 to the n=2 level and it is in visible region.

The wavelength of line F is 486nm.

From the figure 1 the initial and the final electronic state for the line F of the H atom in the Balmer series can be identified.
