Definition:This is a controlled flame test with the intensity of the flame color quantified by photoelectric circuitry. The intensity of the color will depend on the energy that had been absorbed by the atoms that was sufficient to vaporize them. Filters select which colors the photometer detects and exclude the influence of other ions.
