William Pittman SID: 817000368 10/4/2007 Interaction of Light With Matter: Beer’s Law Summary – In this experiment, we observed the effects of path length, concentration, and color on the amount of light transmitted through a solution. We did this by first placing various numbers of cuvettes in the beam path and then recorded the intensity of the laser fired though these cuvettes with each addition. As the number of cuvettes increased, the intensity of light that reached the light sensor decreased. In the second part of the experiment, we placed copper sulfate that possessed different amounts of concentration in the beam path, as the solution concentration increased, the amount of light that reached the light sensor decreased. For both part A and B, an inverse relationship presented itself. For the last part of the experiment we directed the beam path through a solution that was red in color, water, and a diluted version of the solution. We saw found that a solution red in color absorbed less light than the copper sulfate solution, while
