Homework Help: Compare transition wavelength

    I'm thinking I use the omegaij formula to determine the frequency between energy levels and then use that to calculate the wavelength.

    Well, I must be doing something computationally incorrectly.

    For (1) hydrogen, I'm getting a wavelength of 1.93 x 10^-8 m or 19.3 nm.
