Description
Lab Report #4: Spectroscopy Ashley Wolfe The purpose of our experiment was to become familiar with the light spectrum and to use known spectra to calibrate a spectrometer. The spectrometer was calibrated, and while looking at different light objects data was collected. First the observed data was recorded. For blue light data ranged from 510 nm (nanometer) – 560 nm. Green light data was 570 nm – 660 nm. Data for yellow light was 640 nm – 660 nm. Red light data was around 700 nm – 790 nm. All these values are observed; these values had to be corrected by using the equation attained from spectrometer calibration: y=1.0652x+26.071 . The results show that it is possible to use known spectra to calibrate a spectrometer. Also, the goal of becoming familiarized with the light spectrum was accomplished. However, this experiment was not flawless. Clearly the wavelength values given abo
