Perform a first-hand investigation to examine a variety of spectra produced by discharge tubes, reflected sunlight, or incandescent filaments

  • Examine spectrum of incandescent tube using spectroscope
  • Compare with reflected sunlight
  • Examine output of different discharge tubes e.g. sodium
  • Examine incandescent through a coloured solution e.g. CuSO4
  • Draw spectrum using coloured pencils
