Homework Help: Light Spectrum

  1. Sep 23, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What are some differences between the spectrum observed for light from the incandescent bulb, the fluorescent tube, and the spectrum observed from sunlight?

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think that sunlight produces an absorption spectrum, whereas both incandescent bulb and fluorescent tube both produce an emission spectrum? Am I right on this?
