5. Draw a planetary model (solar system model) of the hydrogen atom and
show the various transitions responsible for the visible emission spectrum of
hydrogen. Label the transitions by either color or wavelength.

Using equation 3.0, the energies of the final and initial states can be written as
En - - Ru(1/n7)
Ery = - RH(1/ n/)
AE - Eny - En, = - Ru(1/no) + Ru(1/n/) - RH(1/np - 1/n/) (6)
AE = hv
Setting the results of equations 6.0 and 7.0 equal to one another
v = (RH/h)[1/n2 - 1/nr)
where Ru is Rydberg's constant, h is Planck's constant, n is the principal
quantum number of the initial state and my is the principal quantum number of
the final state:
1. From a literature source, obtain the known wavelengths for the four emission
lines in the visible wavelength range for hydrogen and record them in the
table below.

2. Using the literature values for the wavelengths, convert these wavelength
values to frequencies using the relationship
V -c/ 2
where v is the frequency in sec ', c is the speed of light ( x 105 m/sec) and ) Is
the wavelength in nanometers. Record these frequencies in the following table.
Violet = ( 3x 10") /(4x10 ) 7.5x 10" he
green : ( 3x 100) ) (5x 10 7)= GRIM hz
yellow = ( 34 10 )/(5. 25 x 10-1):5.129 x1014 hz
Red = ( 3x 10# ) / (6.5 x 10-7)= 4.415 x 101 h2 32
