05.06 Electromagnetic Spectrum Lab Report

Instructions: In this virtual lab, you will use a virtual spectrometer to analyze astronomical bodies in space. Record your hypothesis and spectrometric results in the lab report below. You will submit your completed report to your instructor.
________________________________________
Name and Title:
Include your name, instructor’s name, date, and name of lab.
Alexa Maldonado, Kristopher Cox, 5/21/21, Electromagnetic Spectrum Lab Report
Objectives(s):
In your own words, what is the purpose of this lab?
Identify the elements on different moons and planets
Hypothesis:
In this section, include the predictions you developed during your lab activity. These statements reflect your predicted outcomes for the experiment.
Moon One contains the elements nitrogen and sodium
Moon Two contains the elements nitrogen and sodium
Planet One Contains the elements hydrogen and carbon
Planet Two contains helium and carbon
Procedure:
The materials and procedures are listed in your virtual lab. You do not need to repeat them here. However, you should note if you experienced any errors or other factors that might affect your outcome. Using your summary questions at the end of your virtual lab activity, clearly define the dependent and independent variables of the experiment.
Data:
Record the elements present in each unknown astronomical object. Be sure to indicate “yes” or “no” for each element.
Hydrogen Helium Lithium Sodium Carbon Nitrogen
Moon One no no yes no yes no
Moon Two no no no yes no yes
Planet One yes no no no yes no
Planet Two no yes no no yes no
Conclusion:
Your conclusion will include a summary of the lab results and an interpretation of the results. answer all questions in complete sentences using your own words.
1. Using two to three sentences, summarize what you investigated and observed in this lab.
What I investigated and observed in this lab was the different elements in each unknown astronomical object. In the lab report I had to write down the data of the two elements in each unknown spectrum.
2. Astronomers use a wide variety of technology to explore space and the electromagnetic spectrum; why do you believe it is essential to use many types of equipment when studying space?
It is essential to use many types of equipment when studying space you know that your data is accurate.
3. If carbon was the most common element found in the moons and planets, what element is missing that would make them similar to Earth? Explain why. (Hint: Think about the carbon cycle.)
The element that is missing to make the moon and plants similar to earth other than carbon would be oxygen. Because oxygen and carbon make carbon dioxide.
4. We know that the electromagnetic spectrum uses wavelengths and frequencies to determine a lot about outer space. How does it us find out the make-up of stars?
Electromagnetic radiation s is find out the make up of stars visible and infrared radiation can be used in Spectro magnetic images. These images can indicate the composition of a planets surface.
5. Why might it be useful to determine the elements that a planet or moon is made up of?
I think it might be useful knowing the elements that a planet or moon is made up of because like that we know if maybe one day we could live on a different planet.
