Absorbtance vs. Absorbance

Difference Between Absorbtance and Absorbance


Compare with Definitions


(physics) The ratio of the radiant flux absorbed by a body to that incident upon it
Aug 30, 2022


Absorbance is commonly defined as "the logarithm of the ratio of incident to transmitted radiant power through a sample (excluding the effects on cell walls)". Alternatively, for samples which scatter light, absorbance may be defined as "the negative logarithm of one minus absorptance, as measured on a uniform sample".
