The wavelength of the radiations emitted,when in a hydrogen atom electron falls from infinity to stationary state is ($R_H=1.097\times 10^7m^{-1})$

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;9.1\times 10^{-8}nm\\(b)\;192nm\\(c)\;406nm\\(d)\;91nm\end{array}$

1 Answer

$\therefore \lambda=\large\frac{1}{R_H}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{1.097\times 10^7}$m
$\Rightarrow 9.1\times 10^{-8}m$
$\Rightarrow 91\times 10^{-9}m$
$\Rightarrow 91nm$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.

D is the correct answer but your solution is wrong
In the brackets ==>[1/infinity -1/1] is -1 not +1 so the answer is supposed to be -ve
