Bert Mouler TA: Brendan Beahm Chemistry 1BL – Experiment 14 – Discussion In this lab, usage of a spectroscope was employed to observe and analyze the different light emissions by different element sources, such as mercury, hydrogen, and some metal ions. In this experiment, atomic structure was introduced through the nature of line spectra. In part 1, the basic spectroscope was calibrated by observing the light position of the violet, blue, green, and yellow from the overhead light. The readings recorded for the calibration were 4.3, 4.9, 5.5, and 5.9, for violet, blue, green, and yellow, respectively. In part 2, the emission spectra of a hydrogen lamp was observed and analyzed. The scale readings for violet, blue, green, and yellow were 4.3, 4.8, 5.5, and 6.7. After creating a calibration graph, the estimated wavelengths were 404.7 nm, 435.8 nm, 546.1 nm, and 691.8 nm, respectively. The percent error was calculated against the accepted wavelength values and turned out to be 1.29%, .41%, 12.37%, and 5.46%, for violet, blue, green, and yellow,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
