I need help to do my assignment here,
the ionization energy of a hydrogen atom is 13.6 eV.would the absorption of light of frequency 7.00x10^15 Hz cause a hydrogen atom to be ionized?
calculate the wavelengths of all the radiations in Lyman series in the hydrogen spectrum.

The first question convert the frequency to energy using $$E = h\nu$$. Is it larger than 13.6 eV????
The Lyman series is the Rydberg series $$\frac{1}{\lambda} = R_{h}(\frac{1}{1^{2}} - \frac{1}{n^{2}})$$, $$n > 1$$ and $$R_{h}$$ is the Rydberg constant
