Spectroscopic techniques, absorption and emission of energy - activity 1
During your study of light in junior science, you probably studied the
effect of passing a beam of white light through a prism as indicated in the
The outcome is generally described as the spectrum of white light.
(a) Describe the appearance of such a spectrum.
(b) Visible or white light appears between infrared and ultraviolet
radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum.
What does this suggest about the wavelengths of the red and violet
component colours of the spectrum of white light?
