E = hf = Eu - El = 2.825 eV

That's the difference in energy between the initial and final states.

What's the expression for the energy levels in the Bohr model?

What's the expression for the energy levels in the Bohr model?

En = (- E0) / n^2

Good. Now start cranking out a few transitions and see if you can find a match. (The trial and error approach.)En = (- E0) / n^2

Hint: List the energies of the first few levels and then you can just subtract.

Seriously? That's all I have to do? Isn't there usually a fancy way to manipulate the equations algebraically and find the "n"s? I tried to find a fancy way to solve for the "n"s but couldn't. Okay. I'll start plugging in values for n.
