- Homework Statement
- Find the spectral lines of in the emission spectrum for an electron excited to 3rd Orbit.

- Relevant Equations
- One line belonging to n=3 to n =1or two lines belonging to n=3 to n =2 and then n=2 to =1.

Since there is only one excited electron, it could come from n=3 to n =1directly or n=3 to n =2 and then n=2 to =1.

Hence, there could be one or two lines depending upon the path taken by electron.

Is this right?
