Spectroscopy and Atomic Spectra Erin Halloran Chris Chemistry 1210L-05H Mark In the Spectroscopy and Atomic Spectra Lab the student is to build or locate a cereal box spectroscope. To build this equipment one needs to gather a box, razor blades or notecards, graph paper and a small piece of a diffraction grating. Once the equipment has been gathered cut a small hole in the side of the box; this will be the eyehole where the student will tape on the diffraction grating. A line must then be drawn straight out from the center of this hole. On the other side of the box a bigger hole about two and a half inches long and one inch wide should be cut. Graph paper will then be attached over the hole so that there is a scale for the lab. At a 30 degree…show more content…
It also helps to give an understanding of absorption lines and emission spectrums. Works Cited Web. 27 Sept. 2015. . "Atomic Spectra." - Chemwiki. 2 Oct. 2013. Web. 27 Sept. 2015. . Grossie, David A. Laboratory Guide for Chemistry. 7th ed. Plymouth, MI: Hayden-McNeil, 2012.
