**[SOLVED] Balmer's Formula.**

**1. I am to find the formula of each series of wavelengths:**

- 12500, 31.25, 13.90, 7.81, and 5.00 nm
- 375, 900, 1575, 2400, 3375, and 4500 nm

__Also, n might not always equal 1__.**2. [tex]\lambda[/tex] = [tex]\frac{94.18 nm} ({\frac{1}{m^{2}}) - (\frac{1}{n^{2}})}[/tex])**

Where m = 1, 2, 3, ... and n = m+1, m+2, ...

**3. My prof said that all I had to do was plug and chug, but I am not exactly sure what she meant by that, and do I assume that m is just zero at times?**

I want to know if there is a way I can do this mathematically? She told me to THINK squares, so I attempted to take the square root of the numbers.

Any guidance will be appreciated.
