Describe/draw the process and steps of an electron emitting light.
Physical Science -
First, energy is absorbed by electrons and excitation occurs.
Second, electrons move from the ground state to the excited state.
Third, electrons are excited and therefore they move from a higher energy state to a lower energy state.
Fourth, emission occurs in quantum amounts resulting in line spectra specific to each element.
For the fifth step, what do you think happens next?
