What do you mean by spectra? What are the basic types of spectra?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 16th Apr, 2015, 10:00: AM
When light is passed through a prism or a diffraction grating it produces a spectrum which is basically a band of radiations of different colors in the visible zone and invisible zones arranged in order wavelength. There are three types of basic spectra depending upon what kind of object is producing light. They are 1) Continuous spectra, 2) Absorption Spectra and 3) Emission Spectra.

- 46tth question is my doubt please help.me
- The frequency of the radiation emitted when electron falls from infinity to n=1 state for he+ would be
- Kinetic energy of an electron emitted when radiation of frequency v= 1.25 x10^15 strikes the metal surface whose threshold frequency v0 = 7.25 x 10^14 is
- Name the first five series of lines that occur in the atomic spectrum of hydrogen. Indicate the region in the electromagnetic spectrum where these series occur, and give a general equation of for the wavenumber applicable to all the series.
- Find the number of spectral lines obtained when electron de-excites from 5th to the 1st energy level but no line is seen in balmer series ?
- How are emission, absorption and continuous spectra different?
