Nick Frazier Section 2 Emission Spectroscopy Partner: Eric Fors Lab # 7 Electron Spectroscopy 1. When looking at the incandescent bulb, the wavelengths visible were that of the full visible light spectrum, ranging from violet to red, and wavelengths of 400 nm to 680 nm. However, when observing the incandescent bulb with the glass filter, it was noticeable that the spectrum was cut short to show only the green to red spectrum, 520nm-700nm. This is because of the absorption of the glass filter. Fundamentally white light is composed of the entire spectrum and will show every color when observed through a spectroscope. If the filter is placed in front of the glass, its absorption properties will absorb some of the colors in the spectrum. The glass in this case absorbed the violet and blue colors in the spectrum and emitted the green to red colors. 2. The observations in this experiment were very close to the projected. Our viewed wavelengths were close enough to the Balmer series in order to verify the law. We
