Week 9- Day 4

Today, we ran and analyzed the results of the solutions I made in ppb (parts per billion). There was another problem today as the results showed that there was no Mg in the solutions at all. I checked through my calculations and found out that my calculations were off by a decimal place which made my calculations for the Mg concentrations 1/10th of the actual values they should have been thereby making them undetectable by the spectrometer. I decided to repeat making the solutions tomorrow.
