WHAT DOES CONTINUOUS SPECTRUM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Continuous spectrum

In physics, a continuous spectrum usually means a set of values for some physical quantity that is best described as an interval of real numbers. It is opposed to discrete spectrum, a set of values that is discrete in the mathematical sense, where there is a positive gap between each value and the next one. The classical example of a continuous spectrum, from which the name is derived, is the part of the spectrum of the light emitted by excited atoms of hydrogen that is due to free electrons becoming bound to an hydrogen ion, which is smoothly spread over a wide range of wavelengths; in contrast to the discrete lines due to electrons falling from some bound quantum state to a state of lower energy. As in that classical example, the term is most often used when the range of values of a physical quantity may have both a continuous and a discrete part, whether at the same time or in different situations. In quantum systems, continuous spectra are usually associated with free particles, such as atoms in a gas, electrons in an electron beam, or conduction band electrons in a metal.

Definition of continuous spectrum in the English dictionary

The definition of continuous spectrum in the dictionary is a spectrum that contains or appears to contain all wavelengths but not spectrum lines over a wide portion of its range. The emission spectrum of incandescent solids is continuous; bremsstrahlung spectra consisting of a large number of lines may appear continuous.
