Kuntzleman, Thomas S.; Jacobson, Erik C.
Journal of Chemical Education, v93 n7 p1249-1252 Jul 2016
A very simple protocol for teaching Beer's Law and absorption spectrophotometry using a smart phone is described. Materials commonly found in high school chemistry laboratories or even around the house may be used. Data collection and analysis is quick and easy. Despite the simple nature of the experiment, excellent results can be achieved.
