PROBLEM 14Q

What is an emission spectrum? Use the Bohr model to explain why the emission spectrum of the hydrogen atom consists of distinct lines at specific wavelengths.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 14Q :

Step 1:

The emission spectrum of a chemical element or chemical compound is the spectrum of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation emitted due to an atom or molecule making a transition from a high energy state to a lower energy state. The photon energy of the emitted photon is equal to the energy difference between the two states. There are many possible electron transitions for each atom, and each transition has a specific energy difference. This collection of different transitions, leading to different radiated wavelengths, make up an emission spectrum.
