WS: Emission Spectra
By FizziksGuy
Using an energylevel diagram of mercury, students determine the energy released (in eV) for specific electron transitions, as well as the wavelength of the emitted photon (in nm).
Students then use this data to draw/color both emission and absorption spectra.

A Model for the Quantum Concept
Use only post1982 pennies, the US Mint changed the mass in 1982. This lab is designed to help understand the idea of quantizing a measurement, in this case mass. I use 13 flim canisters filled with various amounts of pennies. By looking at the increasing masses, the students should realize that the amounts go up by 2.5 grams or a multiple of them.
