What is the name of the range of colors emitted by a heated atom?
The name of the range of colors emitted by a heated (energized, excited, etc...) atom is called an emission spectrum.
There are only specific colors of light that emitted by atom when it is excited. The atoms will vibrate and release certain frequencies which correspond to specific colors.
The colors emitted (or absorbed) are due to the narrowly-banded permissable energy levels within the electron configuration of the atom of the element. The electron configurations of each element are unique to that element and thus each element has its own unique (or "signature") range of colors emitted (or absorbed).
Yes, it is true.
The light you see through certain scopes are the lights not absorbed by the atoms. Those colors you don't see, are absorbed.
Frequency determines color. Frequency is determined by the origin of the photon, i.e. emitted from an excited atom.
Do electrons jump to higher energy levels when specific colors of light emitted by an atom in a hot thin gas?
Your question is unclear. However electron jump to a higher energy level when an atom absorbs energy.
The initial atom is transformed in another atom.
Leaves the atom
An excited atom decays to it's ground state and emits a proton of green light if instead the atom decays to an intermediate state what could the light emitted be?
If an atom that emits a green proton when it decays to its ground state decays to an intermediate state instead it will emit a proton that is yellow/orange/red. The reason is that it will be a lower energy proton emitted and lower energy waves correspond to longer wavelengths like the ones that make up these colors.
The range of characteristic frequencies of electromagnetic radiation that are readily absorbed and emitted by an atom. The atomic spectrum is an effect of the quantized orbits of electrons around the atom. An electron can jump from one fixed orbital to another: if the orbital it jump...
Atoms produce energy. The creation of energy is said to be like an explosion. It is through this explosion that we see "light being emitted from an atom."
When one electron moves from the 4th shell to the 2nd shell in hydrogen is energy absorbed or emitted by the atom?
emitted, the atom releases energy to try and reach its ground state.
the brighter the light the more energy the atom has
An electron has dropped from a higher energy state to a lower one. The photon emitted has precisely the same energy as was lost by the electron.
What is the relationship between the light emitted by an atom and the energies of the electrons in the atom?
The more energy levels the electron jumps the more energy the emitted light will have. The more energy you have the shorter wavelength there is.
The energy may be emitted all at once or in smaller steps
Because each type of atom (element) has different number of electrons and different ground states , or state with out energy, so electrons will produce different colors.
an atom can be heated and become ionised
the gamma ray.
An excited atom decays to its ground state and emits a photon of green light if instead the atom decays to an intermediate state then what color light is emitted?
When an atom decays to its ground state, it emits a photon of green light. When an atom decays to an intermediate state, the light emitted is red.
The atom has electrons orbiting the nucleus. These electrons orbit in the least energetic paths possible. Actually it is a trend in the universe for things to take the least energetic path possible. It's a Law of Thermodynamics, of Enthalpy and a driving force that cannot be broken, no exceptions found. When the atom is heated in a flame the electrons get enough energy to move to an orbit with a higher energy than their… Read More
it is released (emitted) as part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
If you can measure the amount of light emitted by an atom, you can determine its energy levels using the formula E=h(nu). Planck's Constant is "h", or 6.62606957 (10^-34). The atom's light frequency is "nu".
In a firework just as in a flame test the colours arise from the excitation of electrons in an atom and emssion of light as the electrons drop to a lower energy level. The firework maker uses other effects as well for example burning Mg or Fe which give pretty colors too.
a beta particle
The mass number is a term applied only to an atom, not to an emitted particle.
Are specific colors of light emitted by an atom in a hot thin gas caused by electrons jumping to lower energy levels?
Not sure what you mean by "specific," but some light being emitted from a hot thin gas is, indeed, caused in that way. Other light is simply black body radiation, which does not depend on the type of atoms in the gas, but only upon the temperature of that gas.
The beta particle is emitted from the nucleus.
After electron capture a neutrino is released.
In alpha decay, an alpha particle (a helium nucleus - 2p+ and 2n0) is emitted from the nucleus of an atom. In beta decay, a neutron turns into a proton and an electron, and the electron (beta particle) is emitted from the nucleus of the atom.
Emitted, and the precise amount of energy that is emitted will depend on what kind of atom, and moving from which excited state. That's how spectrographs can determine what element is present.
What is the relationship between the light emitted by an atom and the energies of the electron in the atom?
the frequency of a photon of light , the greater the greater the energy packed into that photon.
How does the energy of a photon compare in difference in energy levels of the atom from which it is emitted?
The energy of a Photon is equal to the difference in the energy level of the Atom that it came from.
No. In one model, light is a photon: a high-energy particle emitted by an atom. In the other model, light is an energy wave.
energy released by the electron
its called an isotope c:
The nucleus of a helium atom is called an alpha particle. The electromagnetic waves emitted by a nucleus are called gamma rays.
Yes, but only in nuclear reactions. If an atom emits an alpha particle, it will lose two protons to the emitted particle.
Light is generated when photons are emitted from an atom. This occurs when an electron on one energy level of an atom falls to a lower energy level.
A photon is emitted when an electron moves from an excited state to a ground state.
The alpha radiation is emitted from the atomic nucleus.
When a uranium atom 92u235 decays radioactivity to became protactinium 91u231 the radiation emitted are?
Because, due to the absorption of heat energy by the calcium atom in the flame. The electrons in the atom get promoted to a higher energy level, and exist in an unstable excited state. As they are unstable and prefer to be at their normal ground state, the extra energy that the electrons absorbed to be promoted in the first place is emitted in the form of a photon, light. The light emitted from the… Read More
It is when a deteurium and tritium hydrogen atom merge together to form one helium atom, an energetic neutron and light and heat.
What state does an electron move to its ground state from in a gaseous atom in order for a photon to be emitted?
Any so-called "excited state". And it doesn't have to be a 'gaseous' atom.
When a matter is heated then the vibration of atoms increase and hence the kinetic energy increases.

Alpha particles are emitted from the atom taking with it 2 protons and (I am pretty sure) two neutrons. This will change the atomic number of the atom and the atomic weight.
When a photon of energy falls on an electron bound inside an atom, the electron absorbs the energy and is emitted from the atom.
