In highschool I took an advanced physics class, in which we learned the Bohr Derivation, after the lesson my teacher then drew a model of Helium then explained that no one however had come up with the equation to represent the spectral lines of Helium, so i had taken on this challenge to see if I could do it, and after about four weeks I had gotten the two equations necessary to explain Helium spectral lines (excluding other effects, l,m, and s) then so happens the day I told him about it in class he taught that the Schrodinger wave equation Superseded the Bohr model of the atom.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was curious if the equations i derived it would be useful at all.

Also along with the spectral equations, i derived the ionization energy equations.
