    Does an electron's drop from $2s$ to $1s$ produce the exact same type of photon in different atoms and molecules?

    Also, does a change from a higher principal quantum number to a lower one always produce a high-energy photon? Always higher than a drop in sublevels ($p$ to $s$, e.g.)?

    In other words, is the amount of energy (in electron-volts) between $2s$ and $2p$ the same or similar for different chemical species?

    If an electron changes spin direction (the fourth quantum number) does that produce a weak photon?
