The laser extinction method was developed based on the work of Piere Bouger (1729), August Beer (1852) and Johann Heinrich Lambert (1760). The diminishing intensity of the light passing through a given medium was estimated by Piere Bouger. He was the first person to define the law known as Beer-Lambert law. Later on, Lambert presented the results of his experiments using white light which stated that absorbance is directly proportional to the thickness of the sample. Beer concluded that the absorbance of the light by the substance is proportional to the concentration of the substance in the sample. The modern definition of absorbance correlates the Beer-Lambert law as a function of concentration to the path length of the light travelled through*…show more content…*

The Lambert-Beer law can be better understood by the following equation where $E_{lambda}$ is the extinction, $I_0$ and $I$ are respectively the light intensities before and after the light passed through the measurement volume, $K_{ext}$ is the extinction coefficient and $L$ is the length of the probe volume. The extinction coefficient $K_{ext}$ within the measurement volume is supposed to be constant. For a discrete wavelength, the extinction coefficient is defined by where $N_V$ is the number density distribution of the soot particles, $ Q_ {ext} $ is the absorption efficiency, which is the sum of the absorption efficiency, $ Q_ {abs} $ and the scattering efficiency $ Q_ {st} $, $N(d_P)$ is the number of particles and $d_p$ is the particle diameter variable of integration. Practically, the scattering can be neglected for particles in nanoscale, without producing significant errors in LE. Thus, the extinction efficiency may be approximated by Eq. ef {lambertbeer}. $E_{lambda}$ is described as

2042 Words | 9 Pages1. For the demo experiment, the balanced chemical equation is as follows: (NH4)2Cr2O7(s)=Cr2O3(s)+N2(g)+4H2O(g). After the lightning of Ammonium dichromate, Chromium (III) oxide was formed while the Nitrogen and Water escaped into the atmosphere in a gaseous phase. Ammonium dichromate((NH4)2Cr2O7) gave rise to Chromium (III) oxide (Cr2O3), Nitrogen Gas(N2) and water (H2O) In terms of microscopic level, the ratio between reactants and products is as follows. One mole of Ammonium dichromate will give rise to one mole of 1 mole of Chromium (III) oxide and 1 mole of Nitrogen gas and 4 moles of Water is gaseous phase.

## Freezing Point Depression Lab

1657 Words | 7 PagesIntroduction: Freezing point depression is a colligative property that calculates the decrease of the freezing point when any solute is added to a solvent. When determining changes in freezing point, solute concentration is measured in molality which is moles of solute per kilogram of solvent. The concentration unit moles per kilogram is temperature independent, because mass does not vary with temperature. The decrease in freezing point of the pure solvent is proportional to the molality of the particles of solute and is represented by the following equation: ΔTf=Kf ۰ m. By finding the freezing point of an unknown solution, it provides an opportunity to determine the molar mass of the unknown substance. Also, in this experiment a heating

## Mass And Mole Relationships In A Chemical Reaction

949 Words | 4 PagesIn reactions, this law says that the mass of the original substance is the same after going through a reaction. This is shown with balanced chemical equations. It is needed so that the mass of the product is equivalent to the mass of the reactants. Mole ratio is the ratio of moles of one substance to the moles of another substance in a balanced equation. Mole ratio is considered a conversion factor since it helps to convert units with the use of moles.

## Photosynthesis Lab

1040 Words | 5 PagesC is plotted and fitted to a logarithmic-line to illustrate the saturation effect, shown in Figure 1. Then using equation 12.8 in the lab manual, C/Y is calculated and plotted versus C and fitted to a straight line, shown in Figure 2. From the fitted line, Ymax, which is the maximum number of moles of acetic acid that can be adsorbed on the surface of the charcoal per gram of charcoal, can be calculated from the slope. Then, using Ymax and the value of the y-intercept, K, which is the ratio between the rate constant k1 of the forward reaction (adsorption on the charcoal) and the rate constant k-1 (detachment from the charcoal), can be determined. For calculations, refer to Appendix E. Finally, multiplying Ymax by Avagadro’s number will give the number of AA molecules adsorbed on the surface of one gram of charcoal at saturation.

If one wanted to find the volume of mole this gas at STP, then all that is required is to divide the 0.0377 liters at STP by the original number of moles of magnesium from the start of the experiment; this would yield the results at STP if one mole of magnesium was reacted, which is the same as one mole of hydrogen produced according to the chemical equation. In the end, the volume of mole of the hydrogen gas produced in this experiment would be equal to 23.6
