What is colorimetry?
Summary
Colorimetry Definition
Answer
Colorimetry is the method of using color intensity measurements to determine the amount of a substance dissolved in solution. A colorimetric measurement is typically a two-step process that is based on comparison of a zero reading with sample only (no reagent added) and a sample reading with reacted sample and reagent. The reacted sample intensity will be compared to the zero reading intensity and a concentration is determined based on the instrument's calibration curve.
