Answer :

corresponds to Balmer series transition from n=5 to n=2. Now the electron of ground state requires energy for moving to 5th orbit from 1st orbit.

Energy at n=1,

Energy at n=5,

energy required =

Now if the momentum is conserved, we know that, angular momentum for electron in nth orbit is given as,

Initial momentum = final momentum

Momentum of electron in 5th orbit

= Momentum of electron in 2nd orbit+ momentum of photon

the momentum of the photon released =
