The excited atom usually de-excites in about  100 millionth of a second. The subsequent emitted radiation has an  energy that matches that of the orbital change  in the atom.      This emitted radiation gives the characteristic  colors of the element involved. E 1 – E 2 = hf (h = Planck’s constant)
