    Wavelength from a graph

    For the hydrogen spectrum, how do you find the wavelength (experimental value in nm) from a graph? I don't understand what exactly you are plotting and how to get the wavelength from the graph. For example, if your scale readings are: Violet-4.5, Blue-5.0, Yellow-6.0, Red-6.6 The same question applies to the spectra of cat

    Resonance Forms of BF3

    The question goes like this. Boron often forms compounds that do not comply with the octet rule that are termed electron deficient. BF3, whose structure is shown below on the left, is an example of an electron deficient compound. Note that the central boron atom is only surrounded by 6 valence electrons. The resonance struct
