To find the wavelength for all of the colors in this lab we used two equations. Sin(θ)=a(average)/((b2 +a(average)2)(1/2)) and dsin(θ)=mλ. 2. Tabulate your data recorded along with the wavelength calculations performed for violet and red colors seen in the spectrum of the white light bulb. (2 points) Color

4. Calculate the frequencies of the violet and red colors seen in the spectrum from the white light bulb. Which color has the higher frequency? (1 point) 5. Calculate the frequency of colors seen in the spectrum of Hydrogen lamp. Compare them to the expected values calculated using the empirical formula for Balmer series. (2points) Frequencies can be calculated by the formula

6. Are the spectra seen in this lab Emission Spectra or Absorption Spectra? Justify your answer. (1 point) 7. For the hydrogen lamp, what would be the wavelength if the transition of the electron is from n=7 to n=2 levels? (2 points) 8. A star has an emission spectrum consisting of spectral lines with wavelengths (in nm): 410.2, 486.1, 546.0, 589.0, and 656.3. What does this tell you about what the star is made of? (1 point)
