Gas Lamp Emission:

Is Required By Hydrogen Spectroscopy

The Hydrogen Spectrum tutorial uses this tool to relate observed emmision spectra to transitions between atomic energy levels.

relation by Bruce Mason
Covers the Same Topic As Gas Lamp Absorption

Gas Lamp Absorption complements Gas Lamp Emission by allowing the learner to perform the same electronic transition activities while observing the absorption spectrum.

relation by Bruce Mason
Covers the Same Topic As Hydrogen Spectroscopy II

The Gas Lamp Emission activity involves one less energy level and allows the learner to select atomic gas sources other than Hydrogen.
