Problem 77AE

Certain elements emit light of a specific wavelength when they are burned. Historically, chemists used such emission wavelengths to determine whether specific elements were present in a sample. Characteristic wavelengths for some of the elements are given in the following table:

(a) Determine which elements emit radiation in the visible part of the spectrum. (b) Which element emits photons of highest energy? Of lowest energy? (c)When burned, a sample of an unknown substance is found to emit light of frequency . Which of these elements is probably in the sample?
