Hypothesis #1
:
n
f
(assumed) = 1; therefore n
i
= 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
If the hypothesis is correct, a plot of
1/
λ
vs. 1/n
i
2
should be linear (good R
2
) and
the Rydberg constants calculated
from slope and the yintercepts should be the same.
Calculate 1/
λ
and 1/n
i
2
, then plot the data and include the
equation and R
2
on the plot.
Compare the R values calculated from the slope and yint.

column A entry)^2, Enter. Copy
and paste into remaining cells.

Column D: =1/(Click on
Column C entry), Enter. Copy
and paste into other cells.
3.
Format cells to desired
number of decimal places.
Highlight cells, Format, Number,
select number of decimal
places. A number that does not
fit the column width will show an
error and a number that is too
small for the formatting will
register as zero. You also have
the option to write the number in
scientific notation.

Right click on any
data point and add a trendline.
In the trendline help box, choose
linear type, and under the
options tab, click on the boxes in
front of "display equation on
chart" and "display Rsquared
on chart".

From the Rydberg equation,
you know that the slope is equal
to R and the yintercept is equal
to R/n
f

.
Calculate R both ways
and compare (5 Sig figs should
be plenty.)
Use these in the data analysis. Data
