Re: Beer Lambert’s Law help..:(

... these will match). The most likely light path length though your sample is 1 cm (if the spectrometer/colorimeter uses a 1 cm cell). Extinction coefficients are most commonly reported as 1/(M * cm), so when they are multiplied by a concentration (M) and a path length (cm) they become a unitless ...
