Homework Help: Emission Spectra for Elements and Compounds

  1. Oct 1, 2006 #1
    Simply put, does it ever change? That is, does the line spectrum of a particular element or compound ever change?

    I've been searching all over, but I'm getting different answers! :grumpy:

    The line spectrum of an element does not change as long as its measured in the same context, with respect to the particular wavelength "peaks."
