According to the Bohr model of the atom, what happens when an atom absorbs
A neon atom emits light at many wavelengths, two of which are at 616.4 nm and
638.3 nm. Both of these transitions are to the same final state. (a) What is the
energy difference between the two states for each transition? (b) If a transition
between the two higher energy states could be observed, what would the
frequency of the light be?

The red color seen in fireworks is the result of having strontium-containing salts
in the fireworks bomb. Similarly the green/blue colors sometimes seen in
fireworks arise from copper salts. Based on your understanding of atomic spectra
and the colors seen in fireworks, describe which atom, copper or strontium, has
more widely separated energy levels.
