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

Wavelength of Light for a Transition in the Hydrogen Atom
The answer in the book is n = 1. I tried to do it myself and I got n = 5.92. I went on Yahoo Answers and this guy used Rydberg's formula: 1/w = R(1/L² - 1/U²) and he got the right answer. However, in my book Chemistry: A Molecular Approach by Nivaldo J Tro, the equation used in the sample problems and for these specific practice problems (there are 3, I did the first two and I got them right) is
ΔE = -2.18 x 10^(-18)J (1/n2(final)-1/n2(initial))
