CHEM 1A

What happens to the energy between the energy levels? The book says that the energy is carried away by electromagnetic radiations from the atom, but wouldn't that be light still?

I think that although it's light, it's still being emitted in a way so thats why the energy changes. As they travel from energy level to energy level, they shed off energy in the form of light.

When electrons transition from higher energy levels to lower energy levels, they go from a state of higher energy to a state of lower energy. During this process, energy is released in the form of light.
