Introduction

What you have learned

You have learned how to write some simple Python programs and to execute them interactively.

You have learned how to capture simple programs in script files and to execute those script files.

You have learned how to construct programs, including the indentation required by Python.

You have also learned some of the fundamental concepts involving strings.

What you will learn

This module will expand your knowledge of strings and in addition will introduce you to some concepts that will be useful with other data types aswell: indexing and slicing .

Indexing

According to WolframMathWorld , "... an ordinal number is an adjective which describes the numerical position of an object, e.g., first,second, third, etc."

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
