Determination of Iron and Copper By Atomic Absorption SpectroscopyExperiment #1AbstractIn this experiment, atomic absorption spectroscopy is the technique needed to determining the concentration of iron and copper in the unknown. The concentration must be reported as ppm. The instrument read each element separately and reported back the concentration of the unknown as well as the standards and gave the exact, actual concentration in each standard and unknown. The instrument gave 2.592 ppm concentration for the copper and iron gave a 4.537 ppm concentration.IntroductionAtomic absorption spectroscopyhas been a widely used instrumental technique for the determination of certain metals within samples. It can be used in clinical, pharmaceutical, or solvent analysis. In this case, cranberry juice can also be analyzed. The understanding of this technique can be broken down into multiple steps. The purpose of this technique is to read the concentration of an analyte in a solution. Just as
