atomic spectra

What is the electromagnetic spectrum?

How to view the continuous and line emission spectra?

Models of an atom:

Is the electron a particle or wave?

Atomic properties:
The energy levels in atoms and ions are the key to the production and detection of light. Visit the following sites to learn more about the mystery of emission and absorption spectra:

A nice representation of an origin of a Balmer series in the Hydrogen emission spectrum you can see on the following sites:

Look on the energy level diagrams for different elements on this site:

If you want to see the Thomson's cathode ray tube you can visit the following site:

The interactive site about Rutherford experiment:
