I have this problem that asks me to compute the shortest wavelength in each of these hydrogen spectral series: Lyman, Balmer, Paschen, and Brackett and to compute the energy for each. Im looking at the equations associated with each and it seems as if the wavelength can become infinitely small so there would be no answer for this. What am i missing?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
