Flame Spectroscopy
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
City:Welland, ON
School:Alexander Kuska Catholic School
Abstract:In this project, metal salts were put into a flame and the colours emitted by the flame were observed through a homemade spectroscope. The spectroscope was calibrated using a mercury lamp allowing the exact wavelengths of resulting flame emissions to be determined. Analysis of these emissions allowed assignment of specific visible wavelengths to a metal enabling analysis of unknown compounds.
