A ground state hydrogen atom absorbs

A ground state hydrogen atom absorbs a photon of light having a wavelength of 92.05 nm. It then gives off a photon having a wavelength of 901.3 nm. What is the final state of the hydrogen atom?
A

At a wavelength of 92.05nm, n=1

When n=10 transferring of an electron to level 10, (n2 = sqrt (Rl/Rl – 1) = 10);

At a wavelength of 901.3nm, transferring electron from 10th level to level 3 (n1 = sqrt (100 X Rl/(100 + Rl)) = 3)

The atom’s final state is n=3
