Atomic Spectra

Postby Madelyn Romberg 1H » Thu Oct 11, 2018 4:03 pm

Question: Why does hydrogen emits multiple wavelengths to create its own "fingerprint", yet it only has one electron whose energy level could change can emit the frequencies?

I believe that each line on the atomic spectra is not taken from one H atom, but from multiple H atoms in which different frequencies of light are used on each one to match an energy level that will prompt the electron to emit a photon, thus producing a whole range of lines that we would call it's own "fingerprint"
