Spectroscopy is the study of light. A spectrophotometer is a machine used to determine the absorbance of light at any given wavelength. It does this by using a source of white light through a prism, which gives multiple wavelengths that can be individually focused (Ayyagari and Nigam, 2007). Substances are put into cuvettes that are glass or quartz containers that light can easily travel through. The light that is being focused travels through the substance gets absorbed by the
1. Place a small amount of wax from a birthday candle into a test tube. Heat gently over a burner flame until the wax melts completely; then allow
Spectrometer – A spectrometer is a device which takes in light and then breaks down light into the various components of the electromagnetic spectrum.
When light from a hot solid, liquid, or dense gas passes through a cooler gas, it will produce a/an _________ spectrum.
6-3: This process is used by cells to manufacture _biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products__
5. Zoom Out by clicking on the green arrow next to the Save button. Click on the Stockroom and then on the Clipboard and select Balloon Experiment N2. Again, set the temperature, pressure, and moles to 298 K, 1.00 atm, and 0.300 moles, respectively. You may have to click on the Units button to change some of the variables to the correct units. Repeat the experiment with this gas labeling the data link ‘Real Gas N2.’
It is easy to flip to the index of an astronomy textbook to discover that, say, the Sun lies 150 million kilometers away from Earth. It is far more difficult (if not impossible), however, to picture this distance in our mind. In this exercise, we will learn to access the often unpalatable distances encountered in astronomy by simply scaling the huge distances to more recognizable, familiar numbers. So long as every distance within the system of interest is scaled by the same
a) Tap and drag over the area of the graph where the resting heart rate is displayed to select the data.
Chemical change results in one or more substances of entirely different composition. Chemical change requires a chemical reaction.
Weigh the large block on an electronic balance and write the mass on the data table. Record the masses of the metal blocks in grams and maintain the certainty of either the milligram or analytical balance. When you are finished recording show your data to your instructor for their initials.

When a beam of sunlight passes through a specially shaped glass object called a prism, the rays of different wavelengths are bent at different angles. The bending breaks up the sunlight into a beautiful band of colors. This band contains all the colors of the rainbow and is called the visible spectrum. At one end of the spectrum, the light appears as violet. It consists of the shortest wavelengths of light that we can see. Farther along the spectrum, the light has increasingly longer wavelengths. It appears as blue, green, yellow, orange, and red, each shading into its neighboring colors in the spectrum. The longest wavelengths of light that we can see appear deep red in color. Some descriptions of the spectrum also mention the color indigo, which is closely related to blue, between violet and blue.
Spectroscopy is a field of chemistry used to analyze chemicals in food and pharmaceuticals all the way to determining the age and compositions of the stars and galaxies (Santiago et al. 2015). For the lab we performed over the past two weeks we were using spectroscopy to test and understand the interactions of UV-visible radiation and organic molecules in commercial products such as food dyes. The spectroscopy is used in commercial products to find the exact concentrations of each dye, how much UV-light is absorbed correlates to how concentrated the dye is in the commercial product; or in our case how much concentrated dye is in each solution. We were give three dyes to perform the experiment they were red dye 3, yellow dye 5 and
The purpose of this lab is to determine if there has been an increase or decrease in CO2 (carbon dioxide) levels based on data collected from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration observatories from 1990 to 2005 and to establish the reason for the change.
They have a natural frequency, which they are more likely to vibrate. The electrons are set into vibrating motion when a light wave of the same natural frequency interacts with the atom (Classroom, 1996). Hence, this also applies to the object with electrons at the same vibrating frequency as the light wave (Anttu et al., 2014). During the vibration, the electrons and its neighbouring atoms interact to convert its vibrating energy into thermal energy. Then, the light wave of the specified frequency is absorbed by the object which is seldom going to be released as a form of light. The object itself does not contain the colour. Instead, it consists of atoms that are able to selectively absorb one or more frequencies of visible light which reflect on its surface (Ellis, 2005). For example; the object will become visible green in the presence of white light (ROYGBIV - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet) when it absorbs all the frequencies of visible light excluding the frequency related with green light (Classroom, 1996). Hence, all of the vegetation in the photograph is visible in green by allowing the frequency of light to be selectively absorbed into the object and create vibration with the electrons except for the frequency associated with green light. This visualises the vegetations to be the colour it is commonly known to be.
