The wavelength of emitted radiation when an electron jumps orbits in the Bohr atomic model is given

The wavelength of emitted radiation when an electron jumps orbits in the Bohr atomic model is given by
1/ λ = R H ( 1 n f 2 - 1 n i 2 ) Z 2
But that of X-Ray emission is given by
1/ λ = 1.1 × 10 7 ( 1 n f 2 - 1 n i 2 ) ( Z 1 ) 2
Why is there a difference? Why aren't X-Rays treated like any other emissions?

The pre-factor is exactly the same thing, look up what R H is equal to.
The (Z-1) term, is due to the inner electrons shielding part of the nuclear charge such as the electrons involved in the X-ray transitions only see a reduced electric field. It's explained in the link you provided.

In a grating spectrum, which spectral line in fourth order will overlap with third order line of 5461 A 0
asked 2022-05-13
I need to be able to convert an arbitrary emission spectrum in the visible spectrum range (i.e. for every wavelength between 380 and 780, I have a number between 0 and 1 that represents the "intensity" or dominance of that wavelength), and I need to be able to map any given spectrum into a particular color space (for now I need RGB or CIE-XYZ). Is it possible?
For the spectrum say I have the emission spectrum of a white light, then every wavelength in the spectrum will have an intensity of 1, whereas for a green-bluish light I'd have most of the wavelengths between 500 and 550 with an intensity close to 1, with other wavelengths gradually dropping in intensity. So the first spectrum should be converted to pure white whereas the other one would be converted to a green-bluish color in any color space.
Is there a way to do this?

The Pfund series in the hydrogen spectrum corresponds to transitions that have a final state of m=5.
A. What are the wavelengths of the first three lines in this series? Express your answers in micrometers to three significant figures. Enter your answers in descending order separated by commas.
B. What part of the electromagnetic spectrum are these lines in?

From my quick investigation, the spectrum is based on the Rydberg formula, and with a small change, would lead to
1 λ μ = m μ m e ( R ( 1 n 1 2 1 n 2 2 ) )
where m μ is the mass of a muon.
So, taking hydrogen as an example, we would observe similar bands, shifted into the x-ray/gamma range.
Is this correct?

If a black body is radiating at 17 C. Calculate the (a) wave length at which maximum energy will be radiated and (b) energy per unit area per second radiated by this black body.

When light hits an atom (I will use a carbon atom for simplicity), if it is not in the absorption and/or emission spectrum of carbon, it will simply pass through without interacting with the atom. Whereas if it is in the absorption or emission spectrum it will be absorbed and either re-emitted or it will decay to become thermal energy.
However, if there are a lot of (carbon)atoms in close proximity (like in a block of coal), the light will (obviously) not pass through it no matter where it is on the visible spectrum. Why does this happen?

1) The parallel axis theorem provides a useful way to calculate the moment of inertia I about an arbitrary axis. The theorem states that I = I c m + M h 2 , where Icm is the moment of inertia of the object relative to an axis that passes through the center of mass and is parallel to the axis of interest, M is the total mass of the object, and h is the perpendicular distance between the two axes. Use this theorem and information to determine the moment of inertia ( k g m 2 ) of a solid cylinder of mass M = 2.50 kg and radius R = 2.50 m relative to an axis that lies on the surface of the cylinder and is perpendicular to the circular ends.
2) A flywheel is a solid disk that rotates about an axis that is perpendicular to the disk at its center. Rotating flywheels provide a means for storing energy in the form of rotational kinetic energy and are being considered as a possible alternative to batteries in electric cars. The gasoline burned in a 231-mile trip in a typical midsize car produces about 2.97 × 109 J of energy. How fast would a 45.3-kg flywheel with a radius of 0.209 m have to rotate to store this much energy? Give your answer in rev/min.
3) Starting from rest, a basketball rolls from the top to the bottom of a hill, reaching a translational speed of 6.5 m/s. Ignore frictional losses. (a) What is the height of the hill? (b) Released from rest at the same height, a can of frozen juice rolls to the bottom of the same hill. What is the translational speed of the frozen juice can when it reaches the bottom?
4) A playground carousel is rotating counterclockwise about its center on frictionless bearings. A person standing still on the ground grabs onto one of the bars on the carousel very close to its outer edge and climbs aboard. Thus, this person begins with an angular speed of zero and ends up with a nonzero angular speed, which means that he underwent a counterclockwise angular acceleration. The carousel has a radius of 1.69 m, an initial angular speed of 3.22 rad/s, and a moment of inertia of 121 k g m 2 . The mass of the person is 45.0 kg. Find the final angular speed of the carousel after the person climbs aboard.
