How do I find the initial energy of an electron given the wavelength and the final energy An electron jumps to the n = 4 level of a hydrogen atom after absorbing a photon of wavelength 1875 nm. What energy level did the electron move from? I haven't found equations for how to to find the energy absourbtion, just emission.

How to convert wt% MgCO3 to mole% MgCO3

I have geochemistry data for limestone samples consists of oxides and REE. I want to find out the mole% MgCO3 for the samples. I understand that I can use conversion factor of 3.4683 to convert MgO wt% to MgCO3 wt%. But from there I don't know how to proceed.

Is this the correct oxidation numbers for H and O in hydrogen peroxide H2O2; H 1+, O 1- . Why or why not ?

Yes H is +1 and O is -1 is peroxides so these oxidation numbers are correct .

What is the oxidation number of nitrogen in nitric acid,HNO3 ?

Nitrogen has +5 oxidation number in HNO3

Is the reaction 2Al(s) + 3Cl 2 (g) ----> 2AlCl 3 (s) can be considered as the redox reaction ?

Yes, since Al is underging an oxidation and Cl is undergoing reduction .

Does a reducing agent oxidized or reduced in a oxidation-reduction reaction ?

A reducing agent oxidizes during a oxidation -reduction reaction
