Unformatted text preview: he energy needed to promote a ground state 6s electron in Cs to the next energy level (6p) is so high that only a small fraction of the Cs atoms are excited at the temperature of a natural gas flame. At the higher temperature of a hydrogen/oxygen flame a much larger fraction of the atoms is excited, resulting in a more intense Cs emission line. 11. This can be explained by the ionization of uranium. At low concentrations, the fraction of U that is ionized would be greater, thus giving a nonlinear relationship between concentration and absorbance. The added alkali metal salt suppresses the U ionization....
