# What does R equal in Rydberg equation?

R = Rydberg's constant (1.0973731568539(55) x 107 m-1) Z = atomic number of the atom. n1 and n2 are integers where n2 > n1. It was later found that n2 and n1 were related to the principal quantum number or energy quantum number.

Besides, what is r in Rydberg equation?

The value of the Rydberg constant R is 1.0973731568508 × 107 per metre. When used in this form in the mathematical description of series of spectral lines, the result is the number of waves per unit length, or the wave numbers. Multiplication by the speed of light yields the frequencies of the spectral lines.

Beside above, what is n1 and n2 in Rydberg equation? n1 and n2 are integers and n2 is always greater than n1. R is constant, called Rydberg constant and formula is usually written as. The modern value of Rydberg constant is 109677.57 cm-1 and the most precise known physical constant. Example 1. Determine the ν¯ for the transition wherein n1=6 to n2 = 3 in a hydrogen atom

Moreover, what is Rh equal to?

RH = 2.179 x 10-18 Joules (the Rydberg constant) n is the Principal Quantum Number.

Can the Rydberg equation be used for all atoms?

2 Answers. The Rydberg formula only works for hydrogenic atoms, and in hydrogenic atoms all the orbitals with the same principal quantum number have (approximately) the same energy.
