Calculate The Energy Difference Between Two Energy Shells

The energy difference between two energy shells is calculated using the formula


where Ef       is the energy of the final shell, and Ei is the energy of the initial shell from which the transition occurs. For example, for the transition n=4 to n=1, the initial shell is the fourth shell, and the final shell is the first shell. Thus, the change in energy between the fourth and the first shell is denoted as ΔE=E1−E4. The energy corresponding to a shell is calculated using

En=−2.179×10−18/(n)2 J

Calculate the energy difference for a transition in the Paschen series for a transition from the higher energy shell n=4.
