Title Graphs for Specific Information
Organisation SSL International
 
Overview
SSL International manufactures and distributes health care products to over 130 countries. Becca is a stability analyst and in this clip is using an Atomic Absorption Spectrometer to find the amount of Sodium in a sachet of one of their products. The product is dissolved in water, and the spectrometer gives an absorption reading which can be applied to a graph showing a calibration curve plotted from known values. From this the concentration can be read which will indicate the weight of Sodium when applied to the appropriate formula. The process involves the interpretation of graphs, measures and the use of formulae.
