Unformatted text preview: The significance in using a straight-line plot is calculating the difference in absorbance and concentration using a constant (also known as Beers Law). Wavelength is a major factor that affects the intensity of color. Larger absorbency will occur between two colors that have the greatest change in wavelength. For example, if a dye and light color were the same, the percent transmittance would be large. Concentration is also a factor affecting color intensity. Having that been said, the majority of percent T depends upon a solutions concentration (concentration and absorbency increase, while transmittance decreases.). A manufacturing company should always examine the visible spectrum to decide which color to use in a product. There are numerous color dyes that have different purposes for each type of material, thus knowing how to calculate color intensity is quite important....
