Consider an electron in the second excited state of a hydrogen atom. Which of the photon wavelengths can the atom absorb? a. 7.29 x 10^-8m b. 1.88x10^-6m The answer is B, I don't know how it was derived. I tried doing Rydberg equation but it just doesn't show.

You'd need to know what level it is transitioning to, in order to use rydberg

Using Bohr's levels, and the conservation of energy, we get this expression: \[\Large \lambda = \frac{{8\pi }}{3}\frac{{\hbar c}}{{{E_0}}}\] where E0=13.6 eV nevertheless, I get this final result: \[\Large \lambda = 1.21 \cdot {10^{ - 7}}meters\]
