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!

[tex]\Delta E =\frac{2.718\cdot 10^{18}}{n^2  n_0^2}[/tex]

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...
