Atomic Emission Spectra and the Bohr Model of the Atom
Students investigate the wavelengths of spectra lines for common atoms. In this atomic emission spectra lesson plan, students use a transformer and diffraction grating to observe the emission spectra of various atoms. They find the wavelength, they calculate the energy for each spectral line and they use Rydberg's equation to calculate the electron transitions observed.
