## Homework Statement

A photon with λ = 600 nm interacts with a hydrogen atom in fundamental state. Will the photon be absorbed? Justify your answer.

## Homework Equations

hc/lambda= energy of photon

1/lambda= R(1/2^2-1/n^2) (visible light)

c= speed of light

lambda= wavelength

h= planks constant

r= rhydbergs constant

## The Attempt at a Solution

hc= 1240 eV nm

lambda=600 nm

1240/600= 2.1 Ev of photon

i don't know what to do after i get the energy of one photon and how to see if its going to get absorbed, what do i do after this? does 1/lambda= R(1/2^2-1/n^2) need to be used? and if it is what do i do after i find n?
