absorbance A 0.070 M solution has an absorbance of A = 0.689. If a 1.00 cm pathlength was used, calculate the molar absorptivity constant () for this solution. Be sure to include the units!
When we are looking at absorbances of solutions, we use a formula known as Beer's law (see links below). This shows a linear relationship between the concentration of a solution and the absorbance (i.e. how much light was absorbed by a sample. There are limitations to the law but it gives very good...
