Emission Spectroscopy Lab Abstract I hypothesized that the wavelengths and the intensities of hydrogen and helium would be similar. The primary experiment objective was to measure the wavelengths and intensities that each of the cations and sparklers provided, as well as hydrogen and helium. One of the most important procedures is to ensure that the correct wavelengths and intensities are recorded, in regard to finding the highest wavelength. I found that the most useful calculation of this experiment is the relative deviation because it provided

how far off the recorded wavelengths and intensities were from the theoretical value. Discussion The fortunate aspect of the experiment is that my hypothesis proved to be correct as the wavelengths and intensities for hydrogen and helium proved to similar. The average wavelength of helium was 570 nm and the average wavelength for hydrogen was 526 nm. The average intensity however, was 769 counts of helium and 581 counts for hydrogen. Another similarity was the significant jump in intensity counts between
