Asked Oct 31, 2019

When rubidium ions are heated to a high temperature, two lines are observed in its line spectrum at wavelengths (a) 7.9 × 10−7 m and (b) 4.2 × 10−7 m. What are the frequencies of the two lines? What color do we see when we heat a rubidium compound?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Frequencies and wavelengths are related to each other via the equation shown below.

Step 2

Given data:
