In a single hydrogen atom, the electron is excited to its 6th orbit. The maximum no. of distinct lines possible, when it comes to the ground state is:
The correct option is B 5
Maximum number of spectral lines (or distinct lines) if an electron jumps from n2 to n1 monoelectronic species =n2−n1.
If an electron jumps from n2=6 to n1=1 in a Hydrogen atom, then maximum number of spectral lines =6−1=5
