# Pre-Lab Exercises¶

Due at the start of lab on Mon/Tues, Jan 16/17. You may perform your calculations right here in Python, or do the calculations on paper and show them to your TA.

1. Calculate the wavelengths of the Balmer $\alpha$, $\beta$, $\gamma$, and $\delta$ lines in hydrogen and deuterium. Are these lines actually visible?
2. Calculate the isotope shifts $\lambda_H - \lambda_D$ of the Balmer $\alpha,\beta,\gamma$ and $\delta$ lines.



# Mon/Tues, January 16/17¶

Place your notes, data, and analysis here...and maybe even a photo or sketch of your experimental setup.

Just to illustrate how to insert an image, I am including the figure from the lab guide here:
