I did a spectroscope experiment with a hydrogen discharge tube.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So far I got this data:

[tex]Line 1:[/tex]

[tex]Color=Red[/tex]

[tex]\lambda(nm)=700[/tex]

[tex]\nu(Hz)=4.2*10^{14}[/tex]

[tex]n1=?[/tex]

[tex]n2=?[/tex]

[tex]\Delta{E}(J)=2.8*10^{-19}[/tex]

[tex]E(J)=?[/tex]

This is only the data for the Red line. I figured if i knew how to do this, I'll be able find the rest of the data for the other lines. I need an explanation on how to get [tex]n1[/tex]. Once I know how, I'll be able to do the rest on my own. Thanks!
