In atomic physics, the Rydberg formula calculates the wavelengths of a spectral line in many chemical elements. Wikipedia

  • Hydrogen atom

    Atom of the chemical element hydrogen. The electrically neutral atom contains a single positively charged proton and a single negatively charged electron bound to the nucleus by the Coulomb force. Wikipedia

  • Balmer series

    One of a set of six named series describing the spectral line emissions of the hydrogen atom. Calculated using the Balmer formula, an empirical equation discovered by Johann Balmer in 1885. Wikipedia

  • Physical constant relating to the electromagnetic spectra of an atom. Empirical fitting parameter in the Rydberg formula for the hydrogen spectral series, but Niels Bohr later showed that its value could be calculated from more fundamental constants via his Bohr model. Wikipedia

  • Hydrogen spectral series of transitions and resulting ultraviolet emission lines of the hydrogen atom as an electron goes from n ≥ 2 to n = 1 , the lowest energy level of the electron. Called Lyman-alpha, 3 to 1 is Lyman-beta, 4 to 1 is Lyman-gamma, and so on. Wikipedia

  • Hydrogen spectral series

    The emission spectrum of atomic hydrogen has been divided into a number of spectral series, with wavelengths given by the Rydberg formula. Atom. Wikipedia

  • Rydberg atom

    Excited atom with one or more electrons that have a very high principal quantum number, n. From the nucleus, on average. Wikipedia
