    Consider an electron in an infinite well of width 0.5 nm.
    Given : h(bar) = 1.05457 x10^−34 J s ,
    RH = 1.09735 x10^7 m−1 ,
    a0H = 5.29177 x 10−11 m, and
    E0H = 13.6057 eV .
    What is the wavelength of a photon emitted when the electron in the infinite well makes transition from the first excited state to the ground state? Answer in units of nm.
