Atomic absorption emission
...intensity of molecular bands, atomic or ionic lines is measured. In such a case, the molecular bands, atomic or ionic lines are emitted by excited molecules, atoms... Part 2: Determination of Sodium by Atomic Flame Emission Spectroscopy Technique Under Atomic Flame Emission (AFE) Spectroscopy, there are three basicapproaches that are used in the identification of Sodium. These include;
The flame atomic absorption spectroscopy where a beam of light with wavelength that can be absorbed by the ground stately atoms is let through the fire. If a certain portion of the light is absorbed, then, this might lead to inference that the solution has Na+ ions.
Next is the flame emission spectroscopy where the intens...
