 P: 1,159 How do I write this in calculus notation? [delta]E = (-2.178 x 10^(-18) J) / (n^2 - n_0^2) were [delta] is the Greek letter delta used to represent change of E = Energy -2.178 x 10^(-18) J = Different form of Rydberg's constant J is the unit for work Joules n = energy level of an atom n_0 = n naught, energy level at time T = 0 Thank you for the help!

Click on the expression below to see how to render it in TeX, if that's what you are asking:

$$\Delta E =\frac{-2.718\cdot 10^{-18}}{n^2 - n_0^2}$$
 P: 1,159 I was actually just asking how to write in calculus notation with derivatives and such if they apply here as this equation just seems to simple if you know what I mean.

## Calculate Change of Energy of an Electron Changing Energy Levels in a Atom in Calculu

I just thought that the equation can be simplified by expressing it in calculus notation as it just seems way to simple and I'm seeing two changes, a change in energy and a change in energy levels within the equation so my initial thoughts were that it could rewritten...
