An electron from various excited states of hydrogen atom emit radiation to come to the ground state. Let λn, λg be the de Broglie wavelength of the electron in the nth state and the ground state respectively. Let Λn be the wavelength of the emitted photon in the transition from the nth state to the ground state. For large n, (A, B are constants)
