In this experiment, we used a diffraction grating to identify the different line spectra for Hydrogen, Helium, Deuterium, and Mercury. In theory, as the gas in the tube is heated, the electrons jump into higher “orbits” as they are excited. After the jump, the electrons emit a certain frequency of light when the atoms go back down to ground state. The jumps these electrons make are characteristic for each gas

Unformatted text preview: and the uniqueness allows for classification of the gas. In our particular case, we had an apparatus which expanded the light and a diffraction grating that then split the light apart into its specific wavelengths. The eyepiece focused the light and had Hydrogen:...

    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.
