Spectroscopic Analysis of Inorganic Substances
This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic Analysis of Inorganic Compounds. This section explores three commonly used spectroscopy techniques: Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, UV-visible Spectrophotometry and Colourimetry.
HSC Chemistry Syllabus
Conduct investigations and/or process data to determine the concentration of coloured species and/or metal ions in aqueous solution, including but not limited to, the use of:
atomic absorption spectroscopy
Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)
This video explores one of the commonest quantitative techniques used to measure concentration of metal ions - atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS).
UV-visible Spectrophotometry and Colourimetry
This video explores the application of spectroscopy in UV-visible spectrophotometry and colourimetry.
