We studied in the earlier posts that the Stark-Einstein law holds true only for the primary process of a photochemical reaction. However, we never studied

168. QUANTUM YIELD
In the last post, we started talking about quantum yield. This quantity tells us how many molecules react by absorbing how many quanta of light.

Xenon Lamp – This is a gas discharge lamp where electricity is passed through ionized gas (xenon) at high pressure , to produce light. Gas
162. LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (8).
In the previous post we studied the basic components of a spectrophotometer. Now let us learn each component in a little more detail. Light source
161.LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (7).
In the previous post we studied the following equation for Beer – Lambert’s law – We understood that if we decide the intensity of incident
160. LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (6).
You have encountered the above expression while studying Beer – Lambert’s law ,right? And did you wonder what this means? How do you arrive at
159.THE LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (5).
In the last few posts we have been discussing the Beer – Lambert’s law and various terms associated with it. In this post we are
158. THE LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (4).
Absorbance In the previous post, we introduced the term absorbance. The term absorbance quantifies the amount of light absorbed by a solution. We know from
157.THE LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (3).
Absorbance and Transmittance Absorbance(A) and transmittance(T) are two sides of a coin. Absorbance (A) is the amount of light absorbed and transmittance is the the
156.THE LAWS OF PHOTOCHEMISTRY (2).
The Lambert’s Law We studied in the previous post, that according to Lambert’s law, absorbance (A) is directly proportional to the path length or thickness
