Results and Discussions: The emission spectra of various sources including fluorescent light, incandescent light, helium, salt solutions and hydrogen were examined and analyzed using a spectroscope and spectrometer. Using the data collected from the emission spectra, the identity of an unknown salt solution was determined. In addition the observations of the hydrogen emission spectra were used to construct a partial energy level diagram for the element. Diffraction Grating First the diffraction grating was used to observe the incandescent light bulb. A continuous spectra of the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & violet then its mirror image was observed in that order. The spectra appeared in the order from shortest – longest wavelength. After the incandescent bulb, the diffraction grating was used to observe the fluorescent light. The observations of the fluorescent light were similar to those of the incandescent light.

    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.
