Aaron King 660556233 Section 2 Wednesday, October 17, 2007 #6 Emission Spectroscopy 1. When the incandescent lamp was observed through the spectroscope, the lamp emitted wavelengths in between 400nm and 700nm. The color spectrum of all visible light was observed. When the yellow filter was placed in between the spectroscope and the incandescent lamp, all visible light under the wavelength of the color of the filter were missing. 2. When the final “n” equals 1, the following table applies. Calculated Observed n 1 =2 656nm 690nm n 1 =3 486nm 485nm n 1 =5 411nm 415nm There seems to be a strong correlation between the calculated and the observed. 3. R He = 4 * R H Calculated Observed n 1 =2 2620nm 694nm n 1 =3 1940nm 602nm n 1 =4 1740nm 503nm n 1 =5 1640nm 444nm

These results do not have a strong correlation. One possibility to why these results are not similar is because the Bohr model is not a very good representation of atoms besides Hydrogen. The Bohr model does not take into consideration electron-electron repulsion which occurs in atoms with more than one electron

Besides the known reason why the Helium discharge lamp was not accurate, the rest of the lab was very accurate because most of the data was received by observation. The only errors that could have occurred may have arose if the calibration of the spectrometer was not done properly or if the observer was not looking direction straightly through the spectrometer when reading the measurements....
