G. C. 1 - 6: LABORATORY REPORTName: Griffen BonoZ Number: Z23558213Lab TA’s Name and Section Number: Timothy Foo – Section 023A statement Accountability:“I certify that this is my own work, and I understand that if I am found to be in violation of the honor code, I will be subject to the highest penalty.”SUMMARY OF THE VIDEOThis video explains Beer’s Law, and leads us through a lab to show the students how it works, aswell as how to construct a calibration curve using lab quest 2. He has 6 vials, starting on the left andgoing to the right, .4 molar nickel sulphate solution, .32 molar, .24 molar, .16 molar, .08 molar, anddistilled water. Those solutions were then placed into cuvettes respective to their molar value. Eachcuvette is then placed into a spectrometer, which shines a light through the solution. This method tellsyou how much light is being absorbed and how much is being transmitted by using a detector on theother side that quantifies the light. The distilled water is placed in the device first as a control to let themachine figure out how much light is being absorbed by the cuvette itself, and to calibrate the light ingeneral. We then start with the most concentrated solution. The device displays a graph that shows theuser what wavelength of light is being absorbed and what is being transmitted. In this case, the green isbeing transmitted while the purple and red colors are being absorbed. The device mode is then changed
