Q11.1

Calculate the wavelength of the highest energy Balmer emission line of hydrogen.

Q11.2

Calculate the wavelength of an ultraviolet transition in the Lyman emission series of Hydrogen gas from the n = 2 level and to the n= 1 level.

Q11.3

Calculate the energy of a photon absorbed for an electron to jump from a n=3 and n=4 state of atomic hydrogen? Calculate the energy of a photon emitted for an electron to jump from a n=4 and n=3 state of atomic hydrogen?

Q11.4

Calculate the wavenumber of the wavelength of the light emitted from the $$n=8$$ to $$n=6$$ transition.

Q11.5

Explain what the expected emission spectrum would be for atomic hydrogen if continuum mechanics (i.e., classical mechanics) were applicable for describing it.
