Rydberg Equation Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use our online rydberg equation calculator tool to calculate the wavelength of the light. Rydberg formula predicts the wavelength of light.

A method of determining the Rydberg constant is to analyze a graph of the values of n in the Balmer Series vs. the wavenumber. Import your data into a plotting program and prepare a plot of wavenumber vs. 1/n2i, including error bars for the wavenumber.

1λ=RZ2 1nf2-1ni2

? = Wavelength of the photon
nf = Principle quantum number of final state
ni = Principle quantum number of initial state
RH = Rydberg Constant (1.097x 107 m-1)
Z = Number of proton in the nucleus of the element
