(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Use the Bohr theory to find the series wavelength limits of the Lyman and Paschen series of hydrogen.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\lambda[/tex]=[tex]\lambda[/tex]_{limit}(n^{2})/(n^{2}-n_{0}^{2})

Lyman: n_{0}=1

Paschen: n_{0}=3

3. The attempt at a solution

The solutions are 91.13 nm (Lyman) and 820.1 nm (Paschen) but I do not know the process of finding them.

Thanks for any help.
