The frequencies of light that an atom can emit are dependent on states the
electrons can be in. When excited, an electron moves to a higher energy level or
The energy of the photon determines its wavelength or color. By looking up

Electrons can jump from one energy level to another, but they can never have
orbits ... than the first, so to move from n = 1 to n = 2, the electron needs to gain
energy. ... The atom absorbs or emits light in discrete packets called photons, and
In the Bohr model, the most stable, lowest energy level is found in the ... As
electrons move farther away from the nucleus, they gain potential energy and ...
Of all the photons (quantum packets of light energy) that an atom can absorb, ...
When the electron returns all the way to the innermost orbital (n=1), the photon
www.jiskha.com/search/index.cgi?query=An electron drops from the fourth energy level, in an atom to the third level and then to the first level. Two frequencies of light are emitted. How does their
Explain why the light emitted when an electron makes this move in a sodium
