Regents Chemistry Exam June 2022


3 The bright-line spectrum of an element is produced when excited-state electrons

(1) absorb energy and move to higher energy states

(2) absorb energy and move to lower energy states

(3) release energy and move to higher energy states

(4) release energy and move to lower energy states
