What color is my flame test?

Because each element has an exactly defined line emission spectrum, scientists are able to identify them by the color of flame they produce. For example, copper produces a blue flame, lithium and strontium a red flame, calcium an orange flame, sodium a yellow flame, and barium a green flame.

What is the characteristic flame test color for?

The flame test is used to visually determine the identity of an unknown metal or metalloid ion based on the characteristic color the salt turns the flame of a Bunsen burner. The heat of the flame excites the electrons of the metals ions, causing them to emit visible light.

What colour flame does arsenic burn with?

Zn Zinc Blue-green to pale green

Do anions affect flame color?

While usually cations dictate the colour, anions are also known to create colourful flames. The reason usually cations produce colour is that the wavelength of the emitted photon happens to be in the visible spectrum – the above process occurs for all types of atoms; it’s just that we can’t see a lot of them.

What are some limitations to a flame test?

Limitations of the Flame Test

  • The test cannot detect low concentrations of most ions.
  • The brightness of the signal varies from one sample to another.
  • Impurities or contaminants affect the test results.
  • The test cannot differentiate between all elements.

What burns with a green flame?

What kind of ions are used in a flame test?

A number of common metal ions (Li+, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Ba2+, Sr2+, and Cu2+) give a distinct color to a flame. Therefore, a flame test is often used as a confirmatory test in identifying an unknown metal. Compounds of these ions provide the beautiful colors in a fireworks display.

How do you test a flame in a lab?

In the flame test lab, the flames were different colors at different times, and we used a spectrascope to see the color of the flame that alligned with a number that illustrated the flame’s spectrum. First we took a Q-Tip that was in the beaker with water, and dipped it into on of the metal ions.
