The Perkin Elmbver Model 303, equipped with the DCR-1, digital concentration readout, was evaluated as to its ability to provide an index of silver concentration in water solutions, without concentrating in any manner. The procedures, principal settings, and adjustments which must be observed are described.
This instrument can detect the difference between concentrations of 10-15 and 10-12 gm/ml. However, as the concentration of silver decreases the experimental error increases to a point at which the error becomes greater than the differences in readout due to differences in silver concentration.
