Hello all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Bohr calculated the energies of each orbit of a hydrogen atom using the following forumula: [tex] (-2.18 \times \frac{1}{10^1^8} \frac{1}{n^2}) [/tex]

Is it true that [tex] n \rightarrow \infty [/tex] the energy appraches 0?

Also [tex] \Delta E = hv = \frac{hc}{\lambda} = (-2.18 \times \frac{1}{10^1^8})(\frac {1}{n^2_f} - \frac {1}{n^2_i}) [/tex] how do we get this? What is it saying?

Thanks alot
