Flame Tests
Aims
To identify metals by the colours they
produce in a Bunsen flame.
Results
Name of compound Flame colour
Sodium carbonate
Potassium carbonate
Lithium chloride
Lithium
Sodium
Potassium
Calcium
Strontium
Barium
Copper
What is Happening?
What is Happening?
Bunsen flame moves electrons to higher energy levels.
As the sample cools electrons fall back to the lower
energy levels, giving out characteristic colours.
