#### Question

An electron jumps from fourth to first orbit in an atom. How many maximum number of spectral lines can be emitted by the atom? To which series these lines correspond?

#### Solution

When an electron passes from n = 4 energy level to n = 1 level, the number of maximum spectral lines emitted by the atom will be 6 because maximum number of photons emitted are 6, corresponding to 6 transitions. These lines will correspond to Balmer series.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
