    I know the energies of the energy levels, but wanted to double check on this part

    20 h w - 12 hw= 8 hw

    @modphysnoob the book wants in eV. It says use Ef-Ei (final-initial) Would I say -0.85-(-13.6 ev)?

    My book gives the energy level values of n=3 as -1.51 ev and n=4 as -.085. To find energy absorbed, it says use Energy final -energy initial
