λ  definition (units)
Wavelength  distance between successive crests (cm, m, nm)

ν  definition (units)
Frequency  number of cycles in a given amount of time (1/s = Hz)

Amplitude  defintion (units)
Amplitude  vertical height of a crest/depth of troph (cm, m, nm)

Frequency from Wavelength
ν = c/λ

Wavelength from Frequency
λ = c/ν

c  formula
Speed of Light  3.00x10^{8}m/s

Energy in a photon of light from frequency
E = hν

Energy in a photon of light from wavelength
E = hc/λ

h  formula
Planck's constant  6.626x10^{34}J·s

Hydrogen energy spectrum of nth level
E_{n}=Rhc/n^{2}

Hydrogen energy of a transition/jump
ΔE = Rhc(1/n_{f}^{2}1/n_{i}^{2})
