Clean-up: The contents of the test tubes must be discarded to the waste container labeled Cobalt waste. 61 DATA ANALYSIS Part III. Making the Beer's Law Plots. Overview and a Modest Theoretical Excursion: In this part of the experiment you will manipulate the data collected in Part III to obtain the values of effective molar absorptivity, symbolized by *, for both the red and the green complexes at the two wavelengths of interest here. Beer's Law in the form in which you have seen it previously, A = ℓC, strictly applies only to a slender beam of monochromatic light passing through a cell with flat, parallel windows. In the present experiment the light beam is not small and the cell is not a rectangular parallelepiped, so the path length, ℓ, cannot be defined. Operationally, the detector outputs a signal that is the average of the exit intensity over the cross section of the cylindrical cuvette. If...
