P1670: Green Lantern? Green Flames. Electronic Transitions and Radiation in Splash! Fall 2011 (Oct. 29 - 30, 2011)
In this class, we will learn why different metal salts burn different colors. For instance, potassium chloride burns purple while cupric sulfate burns green. The demonstration will be used as motivation to explain the chemical principles behind electronic transition of various metals, and to provide a brief summary of the electromagnetic spectrum, fluorescence, electronic states in a lattice, and atomic orbital theory.
