|6.3 Spectrum Analysis|
Here is where you can help me out. There are seven star spectra that need to be analyzed for any recognizable elements. Click on one of the pink triangles in the sky map above to make a star's spectrum appear in a pop-up window. Compare this spectrum with the spectra of Alpha Centauri and Sigma2 Coronae Borealis.
Do you see any peaks in the star's spectrum that are at the same frequency as the peaks in the spectrum of Alpha Centauri? What elements are associated with these peaks? Make a list of all of the elements that you can identify in the report section of each spectrum. If you can, analyze the spectra for all of the stars on this page. When you have analyzed the individual star spectra, please summarize your findings by answering these questions:
Answer these questions for each star's spectrum
