Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when electron makes a transition, between state with energy Ei to another state with energy Ef, the frequency \nu of the emitted or absorbed photon is: \[\Large h\nu = Ef  Ei\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1more precisely: \[\Large h\nu = \left {Ef  Ei} \right\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since we have considered the case of absorption of a photon

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we have: \[\Large \nu = \frac{c}{\lambda }\] so we can write: \[\Large \frac{{hc}}{\lambda } = \left {Ef  Ei} \right\] or: \[\Large \lambda = \frac{{hc}}{{\left {Ef  Ei} \right}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now the greatest wavelength corresponds to the smallest energy change

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and the smallest energy change, happens when electron jumps the smallest number of levels

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, since the electron makes three transitions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think when electron makes only one transition, do you see that option?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example in the first option the electron goes from the third level to the second one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it makes only one transition, right?
