This applet demonstrates light absorption in the Bohr model. An electron is shown orbiting a proton in the Bohr model for hydrogen in level 2. Full spectrum light is incident upon the atom. The user may change the final level of the electron between 3 and 6. After a short time, a photon of the appropriate wavelength is absorbed and the electron "jumps" to the chosen level. The absorption spectrum is shown. The user is asked to determine how the wavelength of the absorbed photon depends on the starting and ending orbital levels.

This applet is based on Physlets, developed at Davidson College. It is part of a collection of similar applet-based exercises covering the topics in a standard introductory physics textbook.
