Why is the emission spectrum for each element different?

Asked by Chetan | 8th Feb, 2012, 05:00: PM

Expert Answer:

Different elements emit different emission spectra when they are excited because each type of element has a unique energy shell or energy level system. Each element has a different set of emission colors because they have different energy level spacings.
