Determining the Concentration of an Unknown Solution
Graph: The effect of concentration of CuS04 * 5H20 on transmittance.

I solved for my unknown by plugging in “y” as my given transmittance value, which was 85.0. y = -278x + 100.12
.85 = -278x + 100.12
-99.27 = -278x
X = .357M (concentration)

The relationship between the transmittance values and the concentration is an indirect relationship. Whenever the concentration increases, the transmittance decreases. It can also be reversed, so when the concentration decreases, the transmittance increases. For this graph, the line should not touch the origin because it is a negative slope. In order for the concentration to be 0, the transmittance level must be at exactly 100%. This means that all the light particles are transmitted directly through the object without any levels of concentration.

Y = 1.4599x – 0.0068
.07 = 1.4559x – 0.0068
X = 0.05

The 2nd graph was between concentration and absorbance. This is a direct relationship because as the concentration increased, the absorbance also increased. For this graph, the line should touch the origin because it is a positive slope going from lower values to higher values. Also it passes through the origin because direct variation relationships are in the form of y = mx, where y and m are constant variables. For the absorbance value to zero, the concentration must be also be zero.

Should the line of Concentration versus Absorbance go through the origin?
As stated above, the line should touch and go through the origin eventually because it is a positive slope going from lower values to higher values. It is a direct variation relationship. Concentration (M) | Transmittance % | Absorbance | .02M | 94.8% | 0.02 | .04M | 88.6% | 0.05 | .06M | 83.0% | 0.08 | .08M | 79.0% | 0.10 | .10M | 71.8% | 0.14 | .357M | 85.0% | 0.05

    Introduction: Molarity (M) is used to determine concentration. Molarity is found by dividing the number of moles of a solute by the volume of the solution in liters. Multiple series of solutions with different concentrations can be used by diluting the concentration. The dilution technique is: Number Moles Concentrated Solution = Number Moles Dilute Solution. An instrument called a spectrophotometer detects the amount of light that passes through the sample and the percent transmittance can be recorded…

    Molarity (M) is number of moles of solute per liter of solution. The formula is : Molarity (M) = (moles of solute)/(litre of solution) Percent by mass is can be calculated by the mass of solute (grams) per 100 of mass of solution (grams). The formula is: Percent solute = (grams of solute)/(grams of solution) X 100% Vinegar is a common household item which contains acetic acid. Acetic acid has a molecular formula of CH3COOH.

    The purpose of this lab was to see which solutions are soluble and which are not. We were able to see this by mixing certain solutions together and observing changes that occurred. The procedure for this experiment included a few different steps. The first steps were to add the nitrate solutions into the lettered parts of the 96-well plate. Once you were done with that, you were supposed to add the sodium solutions to the numbered parts of the 96-well plate, so that the solutions were added together…
