4. Analysis and Discussion: The yellow-orange lines are much stronger than the violet lines. This lab had to do with the emission spectrum of the element. This means that the spectrum produce is by electrons that are excited and give off energy. The lines that are brighter in color have electrons that are full of energy and excitement thus giving off a brighter emission. In this model, electrons can occupy some areas of space called orbits. Electrons that orbit closer to the nucleus are lower in energy giving off a low emission thus the harder to observe colors. Electrons that orbit farther from the nucleus are more excited and give off vibrant color. The lines in the spectrum were formed from electrons moving from a higher energy orbit to a lower energy orbit as they absorbed energy during the transition. It’s hard to understand how to distinguish between the two violet lines, however, the use of emission has a lot to do with the characterics of the lines. Perhaps with a higher emission,

    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.
