if you have a wavefunction for an electron in one orbital and another wavefunction for the same electron in another orbital and assuming that the electron transitions from the one to the other orbital how would you derive the frequency of the emitted light from the wavefunctions themselves. (without just calculating the total energy released)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

does the wavefunction have a frequency?
