energy of nth level is 13.6/(n^2).....calculate difference b/n two adjacent levels...u shudnt have a prob now

\[E=Rhc*1/n^2 \] R, h and c are constant so you can write it as E = 13,6/n^2 but than E is in eV not Joule. n is a natural number (1;2;3;4;5...) If you calculate some energylevels then you quickly see that the difference in energy gets smaller and smaller for bigger n.
