ANS: Compare Bohr theory versus Rydberg constant

To compare the predictions of the Bohr Theory with the value of the Rydberg constant previously determined empirically, we may note that since 1/λ = v/c, the constant R should be derivable from the atomic constants which appear.

The value so calculated for R agress fully with the empirical value. The Bohr model and assumptions predict the experimentally determined wavelengths in the various series of the spectrum of hydrogen.
