The Rydberg formula is that the mathematical formula to determine the wavelength of light emitted by an electron moving b/w the energy levels of an atom. When an electron transfers from 1 atomic orbital to another, it’s energy changes. When an electron shifts from an orbital with high energy to a lower energy state, a photon of light is created. A photon of light gets absorbed by the atom when the electron moves from low energy to a higher energy state.
