What is spectrum?

    What is spectrum?

    Today my teacher started the class by saying we are gonna see about spectroscopy which deals with interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter and there are two types of spectrum the atomic spectrum and the molecular spectrum.

    He didn't even say us what is spectrum and started talking about its type.

    Thanks in advance.

    Presumably you looked it up somewhere like Wikipedia or Google. What exactly didn't you understand?
