Expert Answer:

### Max Plank in 1901 , gave a new revolutionary theory known as Quantum theory of radiation.
Main features of this theory are :
1. Radiant energy is not emitted or absorbed continuously but discontinuously in the form of small packets of energy called Quanta.
Each quanta is associated with a definite amount of energy.
2. E is directly proportional to frequency of light,
E=hv where h is known as planks constant. h= 6.63x10^{-34} Js
3. The total amount of energy emitted or absorbed by the body will be some whole no. multiple of quantum,
i.e, E=nhv , where n is an integer such as 1, 2, 3, ....
Since, the frequency ν, wavelength λ, and speed of light c are related by λν = c, the Planck relation for a photon can also be expressed as
The above equation leads to another relationship involving the Planck constant.

^{-34}Js

- The wavelength of a spectral line for an electronic transition is inversely proportional to : (1) number of electrons undergoing transition (2) the nuclear charge of the atom (3) the velocity of an electron undergoing transition (4) the difference in the energy involved in the transition
- a photon of 3000 Angstrom is absorbed by a gas and then re-elected as two photons. One photon is red 7600 Angstrom . What wavelength of other photon? Here I am knowing solution but I am not able to understand that why we are using formula ( h*c/lambda of total = h*c/lambda of 1 +h*c / lambda of 2 ) Please solve it

- Light of wavelength 1281.8nm is emitted when an electron of hydrogen atom drops from 5th to 3rd energy level calculate the wavelength of the photon emitted when electron falls from 3rd to ground level.
