# Thickness of nickel foil required for the transmission of 35.8 % power of incident beam of Cu kα line needs to be calculated where 8.90g/cm 3 is the density of nickel. And the mass absorption coefficient of nickel is 49.2 cm 2 /g measured by Cu kα line. Concept introduction: Beer’s law will be used for the calculation of thickness of Ni foil. This formula is given as- ln P o P = μ M ρ x Where, P o = transmitted beam power P = incident beam power µ M = mass absorption coefficient ρ = density x = sample thickness ### Principles of Instrumental Analysis
