Would the concentration be in ppm or mg/l?
« on: November 01, 2015, 10:26:19 AM »
I created a standard curve data based on a dye concentration in ppm and an absorbance. I need to determine the dye concentration in a specific item. I found the item's absorbance and I plugged it into the standard curve data equation but is the concentration in ppm or mg/l?

If your unit was ppm then it is ppm.

did you measure volume or weight of the solvent?
