Spectroscopy and different Elements

To start off with, Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and radiated energy. This was created through studying visible light that scattered depending on wavelength. Thus, the spectroscope was created to measure properties of light over a specific portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Then came the came different elements through viewing light through a spectroscope. Even though there are several different types of elements, these elements can contain different types Spectrum's. The three different types are absorption, emission, and continuous.
