Question

What is the transition in the hydrogen spectrum would have the same wavelength as the Balmer transition, n = 4 to n = 2 of He+ spectrum?

Solution

Correct option is

n = 2 to n = 1

 

For H-like particle in general

         

∴ For He+ spectrum, for Balmer transition, n = 4 to n = 2.  

         

For hydrogen spectrum  

         

Which can be so for n1 = 1 and n2 = 2, i.e., the transition is from

n = 2 to n = 1.
