Why do you draw a linear graph of absorbance versus concentration even though your experimental values deviated slightly from a straight line?

    What is the likely source of error from reading a graph where the absorbance (y-axis) versus concentration (x-axis) shows non-deal behaviour. The graph is going in what looks like a line of best fit but then curves off a the end.

    Suppose you have a set of data points for x and t. Using the below formula you need to graph a STRAIGHT LINE. x = 1/2 a t^2 Now, I know I would graph x versus t, but do I graph: -x versus t -x versus the root of t -x versus t^2

    okay you talked about using a graph and we made one so this is the formula from it. y = 2.2019x y = absorbance x= concentration so if i have an absorbance of .02, do i do... .02/2.2019= .0091 .0091 would be x so it would be the
