could i get help or a formula for this question please
Use the Energy Levels for Hydrogen to calculate the wavelength corresponding to the following electron transition Transition Energy in ev's Emitted wavelengths in m 2>1______ ________x10______

Here's a formula you can use after you've discovered how many energy is contained in the photon emited during the transition of the electron
[tex]E=hf[/tex] where f is the frequency of the photon. How are frequency and wavelenght related?

Bohr Model
I dont think quasar is stumped, i think he was asking you a question which has an answer. The energy should be a given, or predicted by the bohr model. Think back to waves what other equation relates wavelength and frequency.

well speed of sound divided by wavelength =frequency

hf is the energy of the radiated photons
thats all i got

Ok, a photon travels at the speed of light. If its energy is given by hF, then the relationship
c = (Frequency)(Wavelength) should give you its wavelength. All you ahve to do is find the energy drop from 2>1 and solve this equation and plug it into the E = hF one.

So speed of light divided by wavelength =frequency.

k so correct me if im wrong 21 =13.6 evs and w =13.6evs/6.63e34
?

You're looking for the energy it has lost in going from state n=2 to state n=1, hence you want the difference between the energy of n=1 and the energy of n=2: [tex]\Delta E = E_f  E_i[/tex]

12.2? is that it? nope it was 10.2

hmm i got 1.15e53
10.2/1.6e19/6.63e34 its not right thought i think i missed soemthing wait is this is my freqwuancy correcT?

1 kg = 1000 grams, so 2.3 kg = 2.3*1000 = 2300 grams.
Same thing here: 1 eV = 1.6*10^19 J, so 12.2 eV = 12.2*1.6*10^19 J.

ahhh i devided instead of multiplying
