Laboratory report in addition to other items commonly required in a laboratory report, calculate the concentration of your unknown both (1) by reading the concentration directly off the calibration curve and (2. Spectrophotometry is the quantitative measurement of the reflection or transmission properties of a material as a function of wavelength while relatively simple in concept, determining the reflectance or transmittance involves careful consideration of the geometrical and spectral conditions of the measurement.
Laboratory 1 spectrophotometry, spectroscopy, and protein determinations we are all well aware of the composition of the world -atoms form molecules, compound become more complex, and the organization of these atoms into materials with unique structures is what brings about life. The equilibrium constant expressions corresponding to the three possible stoichiometries being considered are given on page 139 of the lab manual calculations because of the complexity of the calculations in this experiment, we won't be able to provide you with a totally complete sample lab report. Using a spectrophotometer, the absorbance of fescn 2+ is measured at different concentrations the absorbance in then put into beer-lambert's law, a = εbc, to find concentration and ultimately the equilibrium constant.
