37. The energy E of the photon emitted when a hydrogen atom jumps from a state with principal quantum number n to a state with principal quantum number n is given by 22 11 EA nn ⎛⎞ =− ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ where A = 13.6 eV. The frequency f of the electromagnetic wave is given by f = E / h and the wavelength is given by λ = c / f . Thus, 1 . fEA ch c n n == =
