## Homework Statement

Find the range of wavelengths of the Balmer series and the Lyman series of Hydrogen lines.

## Homework Equations

I believe I use the equation 1/(wave length) = R*Z^2[(1/n1^2)-(1/n2^2)]

where R= rydburg constant= 1.097*10^7m^(-1)

Z= atomic number

n1= principle quantum state final state

n2= principle quantum initial state

## The Attempt at a Solution

all my book says about the quantum states in the Lyman series is that (n0 = 1)

how do I find other values for n in order to make a range?
