(b) The difference in the wave lengths are

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Part (a) Step 1: Given information

The wavelength of hydrogen atom is

Part (a) Step 2: Finding emission spectrum wavelength

We can start with an expression for the emission spectrum wavelength.

Part (b) Step 1: Given information

The given wavelengths are and

Part (b) Step 2: Finding difference between wavelengths

In the same approach, we can figure out transition and transition
