explain how does atomic spectrum differ from a continous spectrum?
- Caroline MillerLv 78 years agoFavorite Answer
the continuous spectrum contains the continuous range wavelengths of radiation, including microwaves, TV, radio, and color.
an atomic spectrum is the specific wavelengths an element emits when its electrons are excited up to a higher level and then fall back to a lower level or the ground state. this will emit energy in the UV to IR range
