The molar absorptivity, ε, for the dye called xylenol
blue (C23H22O5S, molar mass =
410.49 g mol-1) was found by experiment to be
8.15×103 L mol-1 cm-1 at 424 nm.
The percent transmittance of a 960 mL solution of xylenol
blue was determined to be 30.9%. If the path length of the
cell is 2.19 cm, determine the mass (in g) of xylenol blue
present in the solution. Report your answer to 3 significant
figures in scientific notation.
