Unformatted text preview: was used to test for the concentration of the samples two least reactive ions, Na + , and K + . Flame photometry was used to create a calibration plot for sodium and potassium and this plot was used to compare the reading for each sample in order to calculate the sodium and ion concentrations present in the samples. The pH was also measured independent of the four methods so the concentration of hydronium per water sample could be determined. The values for all methods were then compared in order to compare the samples for healthiness. Water is a very unique and important molecule for many of lifes processes. Since all of the techniques used in this project involve different methods of testing water, the techniques used will likely have future applicability for any student taking this course....
