Step 1

The term absorbance refers to the measure of the quantity of light which has been absorbed by the sample.

Step 2

According to the Beer Lambert law, the absorbance of a given solution is directly proportional to the concentration and the pathlength of the sample. The mathematical formula is given as follows: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseA= e Cl e is the molar absorptivity C is the concentration of the sample is the path length of the sample A is the absorbance of the sample fullscreen
Step 3

The path length of the solution in the given problem is given to be 2.97 mm=0.297 cm.

The molar absorptivity of the sample of benzene is given to be 802 L mol-1cm-1.
