- Homework Statement
- Draw an energy-level diagram showing the lowest four levels of singly ionized helium. Show all

possible transitions from the levels and label each transition with its wavelength.

- Relevant Equations
- ##E_n = \frac {-me^2} {32\pi^2\varepsilon_0^2n^2}##

From the first equation, there are 5 constants, e, ##\pi##, ##\varepsilon_0##, ##n^2##, and 32. The only difference is m, where helium has around four times the mass of hydrogen. What I don't get is if there is a difference between the energy levels of the hydrogen and the ionized hellium? Also I get that helium is ionized in this case so would the atom have an electric configuration of ##1s^1##? Thank you for any help.
