You have seen that the accepted energy level for a visible
hydrogen spectrum is one with energy jumps from three different
high energy levels to a common energy level. Using this model
as a guide to find the visible spectra, we can explore how this
is used with other regions of the Hydrogen Spectra.
Now enter this program, which shows four energy colors of Ultra
Violet (UV), three energy colors for Visible light, and two colors
of Infrared (IR). Ultra Violet and Infrared energy colors can
not be seen by human eyes so the program will be a simulation
of what is detected with other equipment.

This is a little more tricky because we have nine hydrogen
colors to deal with instead of only three.
