Calculate the wavelength of light emitted during the transition of an electron in b/w two levels of the Li 2+ ion, whose sum is 4 but difference is 2.
 
 
let the wavelength of light be represented by ^ here the sum fo two transition n1+n2 =4 and the difference is n1-n2 =2 solving both the equation we get 2n1 =6 ,n1=3 n2=1 therefore,1/^ =RZ^2...

sum is 4 and diff is 2 let them be ‘x’ and ‘y’ then x+y=4 x-y=2 solving this we get x=3 y=1 then simply apply rydberg’s formula and calculate
