Quantitative Analysis by Spectrophotometric Methods
In this experiment, the absorbance of KMnO4 was measured by spectrophotometric method to determine the molar concentration and the molar extinction coefficient of KMnO4. In part 1, in order to determine the maximum absorbance wavelength of KMnO4, we measured the absorbance of the sample solution which contains KMnO4 at the wavelengths between 330nm and 660nm, and plotted the λ and A points; the λmax was 530nm. In part 2, the effect of concentration on the absorbance was examined. We prepared five differently concentrated (but, same path length) solutions, and measured the absorbance of them at the λmax(530nm) discovered in part 1; According to the results, higher concentrated solution had higher absorbance value. The extinction …show more content…
Another factor that affects the amount of light a sample absorbs is the path length which is the length of sample that the light passes through. The path length is represented by the symbol l and is typically measured in centimeters. When the light travels through longer distance, it will strike more absorbing molecules, so more light will be absorbed, and less light will be transmitted. The relationship of two factors (path length & concentration) can be combined to yield a general equation called Beer's Law.
 log10T = A = εlC (3)
The quantity ε is the molar absorptivity; in older literature it is sometimes called the molar extinction coefficient. It is the measure of how strongly a substance absorbs light at a particular wavelength; a larger extinction coefficient means that substance absorbs more light. The units of ε are usually in M1cm1 or L mol1cm1. A is the absorbance of

Quantitative Analysis of Soda Ash by Double Indicator Method
1942 Words  8 PagesQuantitative Analysis of Soda Ash by Double Indicator Method Results and Discussion The experiment focuses in the use of double indicator titration in quantitative analysis of soda ash sample. Titration refers to the process of measuring the volume of titrant required to reach the equivalnece point. This method of analysis, is based on the chemical reaction aA + bB → products (1) where a is the molecules of the unknown substances to be analyzed or the analyte. Analyte reacts with b molecules…

Qualitative vs. Quantitative Analysis: Evaluating Scientific Methods
642 Words  3 Pagesthe scientific method. The term scientific method refers to a way of investigation or the acquisition of knowledge through the testing of a theory or hypothesis, then working through measurements (observation and empirical notes) to come up with a result, which should prove or disprove the original theory (Johnson & Christensen, 2009; Cary, 2008). Within most environments, there are several basic issues that can be studied either quantitatively or qualitatively, or with a mixed method. There is no…
