### Atomic Spectra Midterm Q

Do we have to memorize what color each wavelength corresponds to? For instance: 468 nm = blue line.

I don't think you'll need to memorize each specific color. Just know that visible light is from about 400-700nm and that ~400 is violet while ~700 is red light.

Like @Sebastian Lee 1H said, you probably won't need to memorize the exact color, but memorizing the wavelengths for different types of light (UV, visible, X-ray, etc.) would be helpful.
