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 B: =1/(Click on column A
entry)^2, Enter. Copy and paste into
remaining cells.
2.
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 smal
for the formatting will register as
zero. You also have the option to
write the number in scientific
notation.

on
the xaxis.
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 "displa
equation on chart" and "display R
squared on chart". Right click on the
equation, choose "format data
labels" or "format trendline label"
and change the number properties
so that 5 sig figs are displayed.
(Failure to do this on each plot
will cost you a point!)
5.
From the Rydberg equation, you
know that the slope is equal to R
and the yintercept is equal to R/n
f
2
.
Calculate R both ways and
compare.
Report your results to 4
or 5 sig figs.
Use these in the data analysis.
Data here will autofill into the third
column of Tables 24
Hypothesis #2
:
n
f
(assumed) = 2; therefore n
i
= 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.
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/

and 1/n
i

, then plot the data and include the equation and R
2
on the plot.
Compare the R values calculated from the slope and yint.
Put your plot of 1/
