Homework Help: Hydrogen atom

  1. Dec 6, 2009 #1
    Could anyone help solve a problem how to find absorption lines in hydrogen atom from n=10 (n - principal quantum number). I know that not all quantum jumps of an electron in atom are possible, thus I don't know how many different emission lins will be from this energy level where n=10.
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
