### Atomic Spectra pre-module quiz

Hi all!
I'm looking for some basic clarification on the atomic spectra... what is the difference between atomic absorption and atomic emission spectroscopy and what does each line/wavelength on the spectrum represent?
Thanks!

I'm not quite sure of the difference between atomic absorption vs. atomic emission spectroscopy, but I do know that the lines on the spectrum represent the different energy levels that the electron can be on.
