Atomic and molecular spectra are discrete. What does discrete mean, and how are discrete spectra related to the quantization of energy and electron orbits in atoms and molecules?

To determine

What does discrete mean and how are discrete spectra related to the quantization of energy and electron orbits in atoms and molecules?

Explanation

Given Data:

The atomic and molecular spectra are discrete

Introduction:

The emission spectrum of a hydrogen atom is categorized into a number of spectral series and the wavelength is calculated using the Rydberg formula. The spectral lines are observed because the electron makes the transition between two energy levels in an atom.

We know that energy spectra of atoms and molecule are discrete. The discrete means that the energy of each emitted spectrum is distinguished and distinct...
