Homework Help: biology

Posted by Mak on Wednesday, October 29, 2008 at 8:24am.

Given a colored end product is produced, the presence of protein could be detected by spectrophotometry. Outline how you would go about determining the appropriate wavelength to use and the amount of protein in a sample.

For the first part, is that like a simple procedure on how to use a spectrophotmeter? The last part stumped me. How do you know the amount of protein in a sample? I don't think you have an actual number but, the more light absorbed, the higher the wavelength. So the higher the wavelength the higher the amount of protein used? Is that it? Or am I totally off?
