New style Vernier Colorimeter.
New style Vernier Colorimeter.


Vernier's Colorimeter is great for Beer’s law experiments, determining the concentration of unknown solutions or studying changes in concentration vs. time.

This 4-wavelength colorimeter measures the amount of light transmitted through a sample at a user-selectable wavelength in order to determine the concentration of a solution. Features such as automatic sensor identification and one-step calibration make this sensor easy to use.

    This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
    ACSBL019 - Biodiversity and the interconnectedness of life - Describing biodiversity - Ecosystems are diverse, composed of varied habitats and can be described in terms of their component species, species interactions and the abiotic factors that make up the environment
    ACSBL021 - Biodiversity and the interconnectedness of life - Describing biodiversity - In addition to biotic factors, abiotic factors including climate and substrate can be used to and classify environments
    ACSBL029 - Biodiversity and the interconnectedness of life - Ecosystem dynamics - Models of ecosystem interactions (for example, food webs, successional models) can be used to predict the impact of change and are based on interpretation of and extrapolation from sample data (for example, data derived from ecosystem surveying techniques
    ACSCH069 - Molecular interactions and reactions - Rates of chemical reactions - The rate of chemical reactions can be quantified by measuring the rate of formation of products or the depletion of reactants
    ACSCH096 - Equilibrium acids and redox reactions - Chemical equilibrium systems - Equilibrium position can be predicted qualitatively using equilibrium constants
    ACSCH091 - Equilibrium acids and redox reactions - Chemical equilibrium systems - Over time, physical changes and reversible chemical reactions reach a state of dynamic equilibrium in a closed system, with the relative concentrations of products and reactants defining the position of equilibrium
    ACSCH131 - Structure synthesis and design - Chemical synthesis and design - Chemical synthesis involves the selection of particular reagents to form a product with specific properties (for example, pharmaceuticals, fuels, cosmetics, cleaning products)
    ACSCH133 - Structure synthesis and design - Chemical synthesis and design - Designing chemical synthesis processes includes identifying reagents and reaction conditions in order to maximise yield and purity of product
    ACSCH132 - Structure synthesis and design - Chemical synthesis and design - Designing chemical synthesis processes involves constructing reaction pathways that may include more than one chemical reaction
    ACSCH134 - Structure synthesis and design - Chemical synthesis and design - The yield of a chemical synthesis reaction can be calculated by comparing stoichiometric quantities with actual quantities
    ACSCH130 - Structure synthesis and design - Properties and structure of organic materials - Data from analytical techniques, including mass spectrometry, x­ray crystallography and infrared spectroscopy, can be used to determine the structure of organic molecules, often using evidence from more than one technique
