Beer's Law The absorption of radiation by materials is described by the empirical Beer's Law or Beer-Lambert Law. sample conc., C I o ' ( ! ) I ( ! ) incident light transmitted light path length, b The intensity of the transmitted radiation at a specific wavelength is given by I ( ! ) = I o ' ( ! ) 10 - a ! bc a ! is the intrinsic absorptivity of the material at ! b is the path length of cell or sample in cm c is the concentration in M
