Case Study Questions for Class 12 Physics Chapter 12 Atoms

The spectral series of hydrogen atom were accounted for by Bohr using the relation

where, R=Rydberg constant = 1.097 x 107 m-1

Lyman series is obtained when an electron jumps to first orbit from any subsequent orbit. Similarly, Balmer series is obtained when an electron jumps to 2nd orbit from any subsequent orbit. Paschen series is obtained when an electron jumps to 3rd orbit from any subsequent orbit. Whereas Lyman series in U.V. region, Balmer series is in visible region and Paschen series lies in infrared region. Series limit is obtained when n2=∞.

(i) The wavelength of first spectral line of Lyman series is
(a) 1215.4 A0
(b) 1215.4 cm
(c) 1215.4 m
(d) 1215. 4 mm

(ii) The wavelength limit of Lyman series is
(a) 1215.4 A0
(b) 511.9 A0
(c) 951.6 A0
(d) 911.6 A0

(iii) The frequency of first spectral line of Balmer series is
(a) 1.097 x 107 Hz
(b) 4.57 x 1014 Hz
(c) 4.57 x 1015 Hz
(d) 4.57 x 1016 Hz

(iv) Which of the following transitions in hydrogen atom emit photon of highest frequency?
(a) n=1 to n=2
(b) n=2 to n=6
