General Info:

Purpose: Of Exp #5: In this experiment we will learn about the spectroscope and how it works. To learn the concept of quantitative measurements, to construct a spectroscope and, to use it for taking quantitative measurements.

Experimental Questions:
Please complete this section of your write-up as you work on the experimental portion of this lab.

1. Hold the grating several inches from your face, at an angle. Look at the grating that you will be using. Describe what you see at the grating surface. I see different color of the rainbow and when I change the angle that am holding the diffraction grating

Hold the grating up to your eye and look through it. Describe what you see. Be specific.

When I look to the light source directly, I see the rainbow either to the right or to the left of the light inlet slit.

2. Before mounting your grating, look through the opening that you made for your grating. Describe what you see across the back of your spectroscope. I see the other opening that I made to be the light inlet.

With the Grating now mounted, look through your spectroscope and describe what you see across the back of your spectroscope. Be specific. As I mentioned before, I can see the rainbow either to the right or to the left inside the box but when I look directly to the light source it look normal.

Starting at the slit and going outward, what colors do you see in the spectrum? List them all! The first color to the left of the rainbow will be dark blue or black, then purple, light blue, green, yellowish, yellow, orange, and finally red.

3. When you view the spectrum, you should be able to see a spectral image to the right of the slit and to the left of the slit. How are the spectral images the same?

The start with the same color and end with the same color also. So the one on the right start (from the close side of the light inlet) with

    The way humans see colour is from the visible light spectrum hitting an object, some of the light goes through some is absorbed and some bounces back. We see the colour of the visible light spectrum which bounces back. Light is absorbed when it hits an electron which has the correct band gap to become excited by the energy level of that specific light photon. When the energy level in the photon drops so that none of the band gaps cover it then it can either pass through and get absorbed by electrons further into the matter or it will be reflected back.…

    At this time, I was able to notice how the rainbow spectrum was different of that of the light bulb and candle. The rainbow spectrum was different than the previous two because I was now able to see a forth color, orange. The color blue was still thicker than the other colors. The four colors were blue, green, orange and red. Neon light: For this experiment, I used a friends open sign neon light.…

    There are seven different Types of Electromagnetic Spectrum wavelengths, Such As Radiowaves, Microwaves, Infred, Visible Light, Ultraviolent, X-Ray, and Gamma Rays. These wavelengths show what can be described as how we see just the color Blue instead of all colors of the rainbow. Radiowaves have the longest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Radio waves also carry signals to Electronics such as your Television and Cell phone.…

    When white light passes through a prism its component wavelengths are bent at different angles. This produces a rainbow of colors known as a continuous spectrum. If, however, the light emitted from hot gases or energized ions is viewed in a similar manner, isolated bands of color are observed. Each band represents a specific energy level change of electrons in the atoms. Since the atoms of each element contain unique…
