Produce light by bombarding atoms with electrons. See how the characteristic spectra of different elements are produced, and configure your own element's energy states to produce light of different colors.
Sample Learning Goals
Provide a basic design for a discharge lamp and explain the function of the different components.
Explain the basic structure of an atom and relate it to the color of light produced by discharge lamps.
Explain why discharge lamps emit only certain colors.
Design a discharge lamp to emit any desired spectrum of colors.
