What is the difference between a continuous spectrum and a line spectrum?
A continuous spectrum has all wavelengths. This is not the case for a line spectrum as it has discrete lines at specific wavelengths. ...

Explain the difference between the continuous spectrum of white light and the atomic emission spectrum of an element?
The difference between continuous spectrum and the atomic emission espectrum of an element is that in emission spectrum, only certain specific frequencies of light are emitted while in a continuous spectrum, a continuous range of colors are seen in the visible light. ...
Is the continuous spectrum really continuous Or just too close to distinguish?
The spectrum produced by something that's heated, like the sun or an incandescent light, is continuous. ...

How is a continuous spectrum and a line spectrum produced?
A continuous spectrum is produced by exciting atoms with electricity or radiation and the atoms of different elements give off radiation specific to the element. If all elements are present a continuous spectrum will be produced otherwise a bright line spectrum will be produced by the elements present. ...
Asked in Physics, Visible Light Spectrum
Does an incandescent light produce a unique continuous spectrum?
There are no bright lines and no dark lines in the spectrum, incandescent light has a continuous spectrum with all visible colors present ...
Asked in Chemistry
Which type of spectrum can be produced by solid liquid or gas?
The spectrum produced by solid is continuous spectrum. Continuous spectrum is formed by all, solid liquid and gases if the pressure is high. In case of low pressure, gases produce line spectrum. ...
Asked in Science, Physics, Electromagnetic Radiation
Is an atomic emission spectrum a continuous range of colors?
No. Atomic emission spectrum is non-contiuous and it is named as line spectrum. ...
Asked in Physics, Chemistry, Solar Power
What is the difference between sunlight produced spectrum and hydrogen gas produced spectrum?
The spectrum of sunlight is continuous while for hydrogen is line spectrum (discontinuous) ...
Asked in Noble Gases
How does an emission spectrum of a gas in a discharge tube differ from a white light spectrum?
It differs by that white light spectrum is continuous and consists of light of all wavelengths. Emission spectrum is not continuous. It consists of bright lines at specific wavelengths, with complete darkness between them. ...
Why is there a line spectrum over a continuous spectrum in a spectroscope?
The lines in a spectroscope tell what element(s) are being observed. The continuous color are background noise or put there for a reference. ...
Why is the emission spectrum of hydrogen a line spectrum and not a continuous spectrum?
It's a line spectrum because of the quantization of energy- meaning you only see energy with levels n=1,2,3.... One would never see the energy level n=2.8 for instance- that would be the case if it were continuous rather than a line spectrum. ...
