electrons and light

light and electron energy relationship

A packet of light energy. Photon
The lowest possible energy state of an electron Ground State
An electron that is in energy levels that are farther from the nucleus than those in its typical ground state Excited STate
Bright lines that are produced when electrons lose energy as they fall back to their ground state configuration. Emission Spectrum
A spectrum where certain bands of color are absent or are seen as black lines on the spectrum. Absorption Spectrum
A spectrum where one color blends into the next and all visible colors are represented. Continuous Spectrum
The distance between to identical part of neighboring waves. Units: meters, nanometers Wavelength
The capacity for doing work. Energy
A test where electrons are excited when placed in a flame and the emit (give off) a characteristic color when they fall back to their ground state. Flame Test
Electrons can absorb a photon and use the energy to move from the ground state to an excited state. Absorbtion
Electrons can emit a photon of a particular frequency when they fall back to their ground state. Emission
