    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.
