Is there a way to predict what colour a metal ion will display in a flame test?
For example - if I wanted to predict what colour Metal X would display, could I use energy gap informaton and equations to get the wavelength of light emitted and thus the colour?
Can anyone do the maths and show why, for example, Lithium burns with a red flame?
