PASCO Spectrometry for Biology and Chemistry

Scheduled: Apr 7th, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm | U.S. Pacific Time

Introducing PASCO’s new UV-VIS Spectrometer! Learn how you can use either the new UV-VIS Spectrometer or the Wireless VIS Spectrometer in Advanced Biology and Chemistry courses. We will compare the features of both Spectrometer models to help you decide which works best for your goals.

For the Biologists, we will analyze enzyme activity in a peroxidase-catalyzed reaction between hydrogen peroxide and guaiacol. We will also look at the absorbance of the chlorophyll molecule and relate it to pigment color and photosynthetic activity.

Then, for the Chemists, we will develop a Beer’s Law curve and determine the concentration of an unknown solution, with the help of the Spectrometry software’s easy-to-use displays. After that, we will determine the order of crystal violet and NaOH reaction from its absorbance curve.

Finally, we'll attach a fiber optic cable to the Spectrometer to look at the emission spectra from an unknown gaseous element to identify the element and calculate the electron transition.

Interested but can't attend? Register anyway and we'll send you a link to the recording after the completed session.
