Question

The difference lines in the Lyman series have their wavelengths lying between

Solution

Correct option is

900 Å to 1200 Å

Lyman series is defined by wave numbers 

           

Hence the extreme wave numbers are 

         

.    

Therefore, the wavelength limits are

          

                                                        .

    

                                     .
