Each element has a different set of energy levels. Explain why the colour of the light emitted by an element in the gaseous state is characteristic of the element & explain with a sketch diagram how a hydrogen atom, which has only one electron, has so many spectral lines.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com July 18, 2018, 3:52 pm ad1c9bdddf
Each element has a different set of energy levels. Each element has a characteristic pattern of spectral lines that are due to the properties of that element ? its ability to become excited ...
This solution explains the color of light emitted and how it is characteristic to each element. The expert sketches the diagram to show how a hydrogen atom and an election travel in a spectral line.
