Mini-Quiz: Spectrometer Used in Chemistry

by Ron Kurtus (17 April 2013)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What does a spectrometer do to light from a burning material?

It causes the object to burn brighter

It separates the various elements

It spreads the light into its spectrum

2. How can an individual element be identified with a spectrometer?

By examining its unique set of spectral lines

By seeing how the element reacts with other elements

By measuring the distance between spectral lines

3. How is the chemical composition of a material determined from its spectrum?

By separating the spectral lines and measuring their intensity

By varying the spectrum when heating the material

You cannot find the composition with a spectrometer

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Chemistry. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
