Explain where the different emission lines in the hydrogen spectrum come from?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 16th Apr, 2015, 10:31: AM
The electron in the hydrogen atom can be excited to various energy levels by absorbing energy. As it relaxes back to a lower state, it releases energy. By relaxing from different levels, different amounts of energy will be released, which produce a different color of light.
