Spectroscopy - Postlab

Question #2

This is an alternative way of performing a flame test. A small amount of the metal salt and methanol is placed in a watch glass or evaporating dish. When the methanol is lit, it shows the color resulting from the emission spectrum of the metal.

a. From the flame tests you performed can you suggest what metal this may be?

b. Can you be sure?

c. The flame is green. Will it have same emission spectrum as every other green flame?
