The absorption lines of neon occur at slightly different wavelengths than its emission lines.

My answer: I thought that they would have the exactly opposite wavelengths? Am I missing something?

  1. Your teacher probably wants False, it sounds very much like a beginning class in spectra.

    In graduate school, you may learn about the Stark effect. Neon is normally ionized in gaseous tubes under very high electric fields, and the Stark effect is present, which splits the line spectra (slightly off of the emission spectra).
