The procedures included measuring the emission spectrum of the lights in the lab and correlating the spectrum with the colors observed through the spectroscope, as well as measuring the absorption of visible light in solutions of various concentrations and examining how the intensity and wavelength were affected in the different concentrations. Determining the molar absorptivity of the species at the different wavelengths is also a major point, especially since this is what we will use to determine the concentration of an unknown solution. This experiment related to topics in lecture such as the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as Beer’s Law, relating molar concentration, absorbance, molar absorptivity, and the path length of the light through the sample being measured. light through the sample being measured....
