Re: molar extinction coefficient

As you decrease the concentration the absorbance decreases and they should both become zero together so the intercept should be zero; that means from Y=mx+c for c=0 you only need Y=mx. For A=ecl, l=1cm and so except for its contribution to the units you can ignore it. That leaves ...

Re: Biology Lab Report. Please Help.

... after spraying ;) Units are like g or kg for weight, l for volume etc. ;) Don't know, what did you exactly measure. Interpretations: Slope & Y-intercept are highlighted on the graph Physical meaning of slope is written along the slope line Written relationship between the two variables is stated ...

Hill plot

... does seem to work however it is a graph describing multiple independent sites...what i would like to know is that in my notes I have written the x-intercepts are equal to the equilbrium constants...is this correct? im confused now because for the first x-intercept our book has an arrow pointing ...
