Reasina Suvaroporn MASC 110L – 2/10/09 Experiment 2: ATOMIC SPECTROSCOPY Objective: To learn about the wavelengths and observe and calculate the light emitting properties of different atoms by using spectrometer Theory: The atoms are heated up to the point that the thermal energy promotes the electron up to an excited energy level and then measures the color/wavelength of light that is given off when the electron collapses back into the natural ground state. Moreover, when the electron absorbs the energy, it is promoted to the higher energy orbital. Nature wants the electron to go back to the ground state level (stability and entropy reasons) and give the energy back off at frequencies that are unique for that atom at that level of energy. These quantum photon energies can be calculated by using equation: ∆E = hν = hc λ Results: In class Q2d). The light incident on the diffraction slit is collimated because when it enters the slit, it becomes a collimated beam after passing through the objective lens in the collimator. The diffraction grating resolves this incident collimated beam into its component wavelengths.

    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.
