In this lesson on Absorption and Emission Spectra, which is part of Unit 4 Area of Study 2 for VCE Physics, you’ll learn how to:
- explain the production of atomic absorption and emission line spectra, including those from metal vapour lamps.
This video dives into and explains both of these concepts.
Spectral Lines of Hydrogen, Helium, Mercury Vapour and Neon
The Balmer series is the series of spectral emission lines of the hydrogen atom that result from electron transitions from higher levels down to the energy level with principal quantum number 2.
