determine the absorbance if the percent transmission is 68.6%


Expert Answer

Step 1

The absorbance is to be calculated if the percent transmission is 68.6%.

Step 2

Absorbance is defined as the amount of light absorbed by a solution whereas transmittance is the amount of light that passes through the solution.

Absorbance (A) and percent transmission (%T) are related by the following equation 1-

A = 2-log10 (%T)

Step 3

Now, percent transmission, %T = 68.6

Thus, using t...
