Emission spectrum :
The spectrum produced by emitted radiation is called emission spectrum.
The emission spectrum contains bright lines on the dark back¬ground.
The emission spectrum corresponds the radiation emitted when an excited electron returns back to the ground state.
Absorption spectrum :
The spectrum produced by absorption of radiation is called absorption spectrum.
The absorption spectrum contains dark lines on the bright back¬ground.
The absorption spectrum corresponds the radiation absorbed in exciting an electron from lower to the higher energy levels.
