Acids and Spectral Lines

Chemistry Level 3

39 g of an acid was dissolved in water to form a solution whose volume was 1 liter. Similarly, 40 g of NaOH was dissolved in water to form a 1 liter solution.

Both these solutions reacted completely with each other. If the molar mass of the acid is 82 g, find the basicity of the acid and approximate it to the nearest integer.

If this number is multiplied by 3, and the two resulting values (the number itself and the number obtained when it is multiplied by 3) are considered to be the excited state and the relaxed state of a particular atom.

Calculate the number of spectral lines that can be obtained in such a transition.
