    Abstract: Calibration curves are commonly used for quantitative analysis in analytical chemistry to calculate the concentrations of chemicals in samples. Typically, the concentration of the analyte, the chemical being quantified, is the independent variable and is plotted on the x-axis. The detector response, the reading from the instrument, is the dependent... Show More
