CALCIUM FLAME TEST(CaCO3)<br />
Orange-red flame indicates presence of calcium<br />
(Alkaline earth metal) Calcium compound is dissociated by flame into gaseous atoms, not ions. Atoms of the element are raised to excited state by high temperature of flame. Excess energy from the atom is emitted as light of a characteristic wavelength.
