Lyman, Ballmer, Paschen series?
These series are the names given to the emission spectra when an electron gets excited and then falls from n=x to n=1 for Lyman, n=2 for Ballmer, and n=3 for Paschen series right? However, I though hydrogen only has 1 energy level, as the electronic configuration is 1s1. How can an electron fall from a higher energy level then? Please help!
