    you could memorise schroedinger's equation, apply it to the atom in question, extract the energy levels from that, use E=hf to work out the frequencies of light absorbed, then extrapolate the mean colour from that information. Then you have just 1 thing to remember - the schroedinger equation

    Lawn culture? Isn't that the green thing in your back garden? :confused:

    My mates, with whom I sometimes work with when I'm feeling more insane, regularly make random mixtures to play with and set alight. The ethanol on fire is a classic, but a concoction containing ethanol is more interesting. Dangerous too.
