Solutions

Chapter 27, Problem 27.5QAP
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The difference between concentration-sensitive and mass-sensitive detector is to be stated and whether the thermal conductivity detector is mass or concentration sensitive.

Concept introduction:

Thermal conductivity can be defined as the ability of a material to conduct heat.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Whether the atomic emission detector is mass or concentration sensitive.

.

Concept introduction:

Atomic emission occurs when an atom emits some specific wavelengths.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

Whether the thermionic detector is mass or concentration sensitive.
