A series of collaborative learning activities and accompanying text that develop the areas of molecular and atomic spectroscopy is provided. Chapters on basics of spectrophotometry, ultraviolet/visible absorption, molecular fluorescence, infrared, Raman and atomic spectroscopy are included. These activities are intended to be done in class by students working in groups, but can be modified for use…
Students explore basic aspects of spectroscopy including aspects of electromagnetic radiation, Beer’s Law and instrumental components. There is an associated text that explains the answers to the questions on the worksheet.
Students explore first and second order spectra from an echellette grating in this activity.
Students explore the workings of an echellette grating in this activity.
