Results and Discussion: An experiment was performed to observe the emission spectra of a variety of sources. A  handheld spectroscope and a research-grade spectrometer were employed to determine the  composition of multiple solutions since emission spectra of a particular compound is unique to  that particular compound. Also, a partial energy diagram was constructed by using the data  obtained from the hydrogen spectrum.  The results from this experiment are attached. In order to determine the composition of  unknown solution 3 , a comparison of its light spectrum was made to the other known solution.  The unknown solution was similar to NaCl because both produced a wavelength around 589nm  and 766nm. The unknown was similar to LiCl as well because they both share 670nm. CaCl 2  is  similar to the unknown in that both share 555 nm and 625 nm. Therefore the unknown solution 3

    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.
