After testing the absorbance of both Kroger and Bayer and doing calculationswe were able to claim that Kroger had a higher percentage of pure aspirin.Evidence:The ultimate goal of this lab was to determine the amount of pure aspirin in the store brandaspirin tablet. To this we first needed to create a standard curve line. In order to do this we created 6different solutions. Each solution had a different about of pure aspirin in them. We then took thesedifferent solutions and tested them in the Spectrometer. The spectrometer determined the absorbanceof each solution. We then put this into excel and got an equation to determine concentration. To testeach store brand tablet we first recorded the total mass to use later when finding out the percentage of
