Bohr Theory

Calculate the shortest wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the hydrogen atom in undergoing a transition from the n=6 level.

Solution Preview

The shortest wavelength will be emitted in transition from n=6 when the electron releases maximum possible energy or emits the wave of maximum frequency.
Because, ...

Solution Summary

This solution explains how to calculate shortest wavelength by considering the wave of maximum frequency and energy emitted.
