Absorption vs.Absorbance
« on: April 04, 2010, 10:30:58 PM »

Is any difference between absorption and Absorbance in spectrophotometry?
I have found on net,that Mr.Beer found out independence between absorption and concentration of absorbent particles.And I don t understand that,because Beer-Lambert law says,that Absorbance IS dependent on concentration,isn it?
