Spectrophotometer Measures the wavelength at which a sample absorbs Quantifies how much a sample absorbs at any given wavelength Measures the light intensity that is emitted and the % transmittance Light hitting an object may be reflected, transmitted, and/or absorbed Amount of light absorbed used to determine sample concentration Use a wavelength of 510 nm. What color does that correspond to?

Spectrophotometer Light Source emits light at a specific wavelength with intensity I o Sample absorbs, reflects, or transmits light Light Detector measures transmitted light to find intensity I
Background image of page 6
Spectrophotometer A wavelength of 510 nm corresponds to the color blue-green This wavelength is reflected by things that appear blue-green This wavelength is absorbed by things that appear all other colors The mix of all other colors will appear red- orange, which is complementary color of blue- green. Why is this important for our experiment?

Definition of Transmittance The amount of light that passes through the sample % Transmittance = amount of light passed through the sample to the detector divided by the amount of light emitted by the light source x 100% %T = I/I o x 100%
