how does absorbing wavelength affect electron configuration?

Hey there! When an atom absorbs energy from heat or light, the atom gets excited. If the energy absorbed is just right to match the energy gap between shells, electrons can jump from one shell to another thus changing its electron configuration. I hope this helps!
