Unformatted text preview: three lines: red, bluegreen, blue. From the positions we got, we calculated the angles and from the angles we calculated the wavelengths and compared them with the predicted wavelengths. And finally, we plotted a graph of 1/Lambda vs 1/j^2 experimental and predicted and used a leastsquare fit to get R and compare it with the known value. 4. Data And Analysis: The plotted graph of 1/Lambda vs 1/j^2 experimental and predicted: 5. Discussion: In this experiment, we are showing that hydrogen as any gas, when heated sufficiently at low pressure emits light at certain wavelength spots. We could only see the basic three lines: red, bluegreen and blue. We measured their positions and got the angles as well as the wavelengths. We used all this data together to plot the graph seen above. To further compare the measured and predicted wavelengths we found the rms deviation and got: 8.98762*109 and that value shows that we measured our readings with a nano meter error....
