times before we saw anything happen. But all in all, it was a fairly easy lab. Conclusion: I learned the normal electron configuration of atoms or ions of an element is known as ground state. In most of the stable energy state, all electrons are in the lowest energy level available. When atoms or ions in the groundstate are being heated at high temperatures, some electrons may absorb enough energy to allow them to jump unstable and the electrons fail in their normal position of lower energy. As the electrons return to their normal levels, the energy that was absorbed is emitted in the form of visible light. The color of the light can be used as means of identifying the elements involved. Questions: 1. Which pairs of ions produce similar colors in the flame tests? 2. Explain how the colors observed in the flame tests are produced. 3. Define these terms: (a) quantum- Physics a discrete quantity of energy proportional in magnitude to the frequency of the radiation (b) ground state- lowest energy state of an atom or other particle (c) excited state- the highest energy state of an atom or other particle 4. What is a spectroscope? an apparatus for producing and recording spectra for examination.

    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.
