The hydrogen electron de-excites from its 3rd excited state, which are the true and false statements for it.
1. It emits radiation giving lines in Lymann, Balmer, Paschen series
2. It emits radiation of only UV and Visible region and not Infrared region
3. It emits radiation of smallest wavelength giving Line in Lymann series
4. It will emit radiation of highest frequency giving line in pfund series.
ΔE = Rh[1/Ri2 - 1/Rfs]
The Attempt at a Solution
Clearly, third excited state should mean that n=4.
So it will emit radiation in Lymann, Balmer, Paschen series, hence the statement should be true.
Then, as per the above mentioned sentence, it will emit radiation in Infrared region also, hence the statement should be false.
Smallest wavelength- will be when the difference in wavelength will be 1, eg. ni=3, and nf=2, if this is true, then the third statement will be true.
Highest frequency- when the difference is maximum, hence the last statement is false.
So, the answer should be TFTF.?
