Akshay Patel 4/2/11 Spectroscope Lab Objective: How can a specific electron transition be identified based on wavelength observed in a Bright Line Spectrum for a 1-electron atom. Procedure: 1. Set up a spectrometer with the tube of helium ready. Calibrate the spectrometer so you can see all seven lines in the spectrometer so you can see all seven lines in the spectrometer. Put all the observed wavelength of each color in the sheet titled “Bright Line Spectra for Helium.” Graph this information with observed wavelengths as x and theoretical wavelength as y. 2. Set up the same spectrometer with the tube of hydrogen. Be sure you can see all 4 lines of hydrogen. Record it on the worksheet titled Bright Line Spectra for Hydrogen.” Using the graph you can find the corrected wavelength. Using this information completed the “Analysis of the Bright Line Spectrum for Hydrogen Summary Sheet, and answer the additional questions. Additional Questions
