Complete the data table below.

Concentration
Solution        Abs. Max.
(mg of Fe/100 mL)

1              .167               .0321

2              .417               .0802

3              .518               ,0996

4              .637                .123

In the space below write the equation of the trendline that you fitted to the
graph of your data and show one example of the calculations you performed to
determine the iron content of the standards. Please attach your graph to this
report.

Y=5.199x

The Beer-Lambert Law explains the relationship between the amount of light a
solution absorbs and the solution’s concentration. We express this as A = bc.
For your experimental data, what is the value of “b” (the extinction coefficient)?

Why did the “blank” solution need to have the sodium citrate, hydroquinone,
and o-phenanthroline added to them if there was no iron present to form a
complex?
Complete the table of results below for your vitamin tablets. Show an example of each
of the calculations used in the process of determining the iron content based on the
absorbance of the vitamin solution. Steps 4 – 7 of the Analysis Section in the lab
manual may be helpful in guiding you through the process.

Calculation of percent difference between experimental result and advertised
value:

Suppose the experiment used another compound that had a higher “b” value.
How would the absorbance data be affected if you used solutions with the same
concentrations as this experiment? Would this change iron content of the
tablets?
