Featured in PASCO’s College Chemistry Instructor Guide
College Instructor edition with 36 experiments covering introductory and general chemistry topics.
Use a spectrometer to learn about the composition of the electromagnetic radiation in the visible range, to develop an understanding of how the interaction of objects and solutions with light result in the perception of color, and to dispel misconceptions of objects "having color."
A spectrometer is required to perform this lab. We recommend PASCO's Wireless Spectrometer.
Students learn about the composition of the electromagnetic radiation in the visible range, develop an understanding of how the interaction of objects and solutions with light result in the perception of color, and dispel their misconception of objects "having color".
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
- Using a simple spectrophotometer and making spectroscopic measurements.
- Applying color charts to determine the wavelengths transmitted and absorbed that result in various colors.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Combine with the Xplorer GLX to provide an excellent low cost solution to Spectrometry in the High School Lab.
Allows an additional two meter length extension on all PASPORT sensors.
