The Balmer series is characterized by the electron transitioning from n \geq 3 to n = 2, where n is the principal quantum number.

The visible spectrum of light from hydrogen displays four wavelengths, 410nm, 434nm, 486 nm & 656nm, that corresponds to emissions of photons by electrons in the excited stage transitioning to the quantum number 2.


Option 1)

Lyman Series

Option 2)

Balmer Series

Option 3)

Paschen Series

Option 4)

Brackett Series
