UA GenChem Atomic Emission Spectra prism, only a few colored lines are seen. This is called a l H atoms UA GenChem Line spectra Each element in the gas phase has a distinctive set of colored lines – this was the way new elements were often found at very low concentrations
UA GenChem Line Spectra of Excited Atoms
• Excited atoms emit light of only certain wavelengths • The wavelengths of emitted light depend on the type of atom.
Long λ Long Low ν Low
700. nm Short λ Short High ν High How do we explain this behavior?
