The following describes the process of an atom emitting light. Place the steps in order. (I already know the first two steps, at least I think.) (Step 1)Energy is absorbed by electrons and excitation occurs. Electrons are unstable and move from an higher energy state to a lower energy state. Colors specific to each element can be observed and elements identified. (Step 2)Electrons move from the ground state to the excited state. Emission occurs in quantum amounts resulting in line spectra specific to each element.
