(a) Interpretation: The reason for decrease in atomic absorption signal for iron in presence of large concentration of sulphate ion in hydrogen-oxygen flame needs to be explained. Concept introduction: In a defined space, the amount of a substance gives its concentration. A substance’s capacity to absorb specific wavelength light gives its absorbance.
