The spectrophotometer is an instrument widely used in laboratories, it is responsible for measuring the intensity of the light that is absorbed when passing through a solution, that is, the light beam of electromagnetic radiation or light, to then carry out an analysis where it can be identified , qualify and quantify how is your energy. As well as, allow to identify its efficiency, sensitivity, resolution and spectral range.
The spectrophotometer is also used in chemistry laboratories, where they are used to measure, as a function of wavelength, the relationship between values of the same photometric magnitude relative to two beams of light. Spectrophotometer functions:
Give information to the operator about the nature of the substance in the sample.
Indirectly indicate how much of the substance of interest to the operator is present in the sample.
