Experiment 6- Page 1 EXPERIMENT 6 Atomic SpectraINTRODUCTIONVisible light is the portion of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum to which the eye is sensitive. Figure 1 indicates that visible light is only a narrow band of electromagnetic radiation. Any portion of this radiation can be characterized by either a wavelength() or a frequency(). The speed of electromagnetic radiation (c) is a constant that relates to the wavelength and frequency through the following equation: c(1) The value of cis 2.998 108m/s. FIGURE 1
