Ionisation Energies and electron affinity
The following represents the electronic configuration and its associated term symbol for the ground state neutral gaseous atom. The configuration associated with hydrogen in its compounds is not necessarily the same.
In 1885 Balmer found a simple mathematical relationship between the wavelengths of the then 14 known lines of H; a major milestone in the history of our understanding of the basis of all spectra.
