Converting transmittance to absorbance
« on: April 09, 2009, 06:23:19 AM »

If my transmittance for a solution containing 1.00 mL ( this was diluted out of a 10 mL solution) of ASA stock solution is 63.1 % and I have to convert transmittance to absorbance.

So;
 -log (percent of transmittance/100)
          = -log (0.631)
                =0.2
