Describe/draw the process and steps of an electron emitting light.
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?
