Question

What is the maximum number of emission lines when the excited electron of a H atom in n = 6 drops to the ground state?


  1. 21

  2. 15

  3. 10

  4. 6


Solution

The correct option is B

15


The number of lines produced when an electron from the nth shell drops to the ground state is n(n1)2

So the required number of emission lines is 6(61)2=15
