Calculating the Wavelength of a Photon Emitted in a Transition
I'm having trouble figuring this question out... I know that if I was dealing with hydrogen I would use the Rydberg constant and it would be smooth sailing, but I can't seem to find anyone online explaining how to solve this type of question when you are given energy differences between states and the atom is not hydrogen.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
[size=medium]The energy difference between n=2 and n=3 for an atom is 3.00x10-19 J and the ene

Calculating the wavelength of a photon using the energy change?
What is the energy change when the electron in a hydrogen atom undergoes a transition from the 4th energy level to the 2nd energy level? What is the wavelength of the photon emitted?
I've already worked out the first part of the question, which is E=4.09*10^-19J
Just wondering how to find the wavelength.
λphoton = hc / Ephoton
[size=medium]λphoton= (6.626*10^-34Js)(2.998*10^8ms^-1) / (4.09*10^-19J)[/siz
