I just wanted to test some values in the Rydberg Formula:
eq1 := 1/L = R(1/nfinal^2-1/nstart^2)
sol1:= solve(eq1, L)
and the answer looks correct:
But when I go and try and solve for these other variables I get
solve(eq1, nfinal) -----> I get an "Error, (in evala/Reduce/ff/monomial) numeric exception: division by zero"
solve(eq1, nstart) ---> I get nfinal^2/(-1+RootOf(R(_Z)*L-1)*nfinal^2)
I was just trying to do a little simple algebra and put values in to verify
eval(subs(nstart = 3, nfinal = 2, R = 01.097373e7, sol1))
be 656nm or 6.56e-7
But I get 9.112671808*10^(-8) What am I missing?
