Homework Statement



Prepare a table of spectral lines by color, with correct wavelengths, and corresponding energies for every line spectrum you observed. Pick one line spectrum and explain the order of color from least to most energetic


Homework Equations



I'm not quite sure what to do here. I emailed my professor and he was of no help. Does it sound like I am to prepare a generic spectra or one that corresponds to my data? Also, how many energy answers am I suppose to have for each spectra.

The Attempt at a Solution



I attempted to make the data table based on my data rather than a generic spectra. Also, I took the initial wavelength and used it to find energy in Joules and subtracted that from the final wavelength's energy to come up up with my final answer.

You took spectra as part of some experiment, I guess, and you have some experimental data lying on your desk (I guess)? Use them.
