Do the Series in the Hydrogen Atom Spectrum Ever Overlap?
Journal of Chemical Education
Much is made of the simplicity of the hydrogen atom spectrum. Textbooks that display line spectra of the various series show that each series is in a discrete portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, separate from each other. The question arises, do these series ever overlap? Here, we present the answer to this question.
