This concept describes the hydrogen atom emission spectrum and explains the origins of the spectral lines.
Explains why unique elements have specific emission spectrums using hydrogen as an example.
Reviews the hydrogen atom emission spectrum and explains the origins of the spectral lines.
Practice Spectral Lines of Hydrogen questions
Learn how sunlight can be analyzed to determine the Sun's chemical composition.
Introduces the atomic hydrogen emission spectrum, showing how it arises from electron movements between energy levels within the atom. It also looks at how the spectrum can be used to find the ionisation energy of hydrogen.
