    Calculate the wavelength of the light that is absorbed for the electron's transition from n = 5 to n = 6 in Be3+ ion. (ans in nm.)

    c:3.00E8 m/s
    h:6.63E-34 Js
    R:2.18E-18 J

    I am not sure is Be Z = 4 or Z = 3.
    Could you show me the steps of how you solve this problem please?
    Thank you.
