relationship between the proportionality of the graph (Kohl, 2006). However, Beer’s law has its limitations. The relationship between concentration and absorbance has to be linear. Nonlinearity can be caused by deviations in absorptivity coefficients at high concentrations, scattering of light due to particulates in the sample, and stray light. Another factor of this experiment is the understanding the similarities and differences between the chemist color wheel and the artist color wheel. The artist color wheel focuses on pigments of color. It includes three primary colors, three secondary colors and six tertiary colors. On the other hand, the chemist color wheel focuses light. It also has primary and secondary colors but the primary colors of light include red, green, and blue, and the secondary colors are yellow, magenta, and cyan. The differences between the artist color wheel and chemist color truly shine through when you combine light versus colors. When light is put in a color filter, they subtract from one another. Some wavelengths of light are absorbed and only the ones being given

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
