Lines on Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

Postby DTingey_1C » Sun Nov 17, 2019 6:49 pm

What do the lines represent? Do each of the lines represent a particular wavelength of light that causes an e- to be ejected or is it the space between the lines that ejects an e-?

The first part! Though the electron does not have to be ejected, it just moves to a higher orbit by absorbing energy. The lines on the absorption spectrum are unique to each element as each element can only absorb certain energies or wavelengths.
