COPPER FLAME TEST: GREEN FLAME<br />
(Variations Available)<br />
Cupric Sulfate On Nichrome Wire<br />
(Transition metal) Cupric sulfate 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.
