The following photon wavelengths are observed in absorption at room temperature from an ionized atomic gas with a single electron orbiting the nucleus: λ=
13:5 nm, 11:4 nm, 10:8 nm. Use this data to determine the effective Rydberg constant
and the nuclear charge.
The Attempt at a Solution
I know that energy is emitted/absorbed when electron transits between different energy levels.
Thing is, I don't even know what the n=1 energy is, to find the rydberg constant. I can't tell what the energy levels are just from the photons absorbed, as they could be between any two levels.
