Name: Dennis Uzar Lab Partner: Nick Luz, Ayesha Syed Lab Section: L113, Monday, 5:45 PM Section 14987 AI: Karen Bohorquez Date: January 17, 2012 Determining Concentration by Generating a Standard Curve for F D and C Red Dye #40 Summary In this laboratory experiment the amount of F D and C Red Dye #40 was determined from a variety of soft drinks. To find this amount, known concentrations of F D and C Red Dye #40 are needed. Then it is possible to measure the amount of light absorbed by the solutions using a spectrophotometer which works by passing light through a solution and determining how much of that light was absorbed by the solution. With these absorbances a plot was created and a standard curve was generated using Microsoft Excel. Once a standard curve was created then the concentration could be calculated in each of them by plugging in the absorbency for the y-value and then solving for x. The values and the standard curve graph are shown below. Drink or Unknown
