Significance and Use
1.1 This practice covers guidance for establishing and controlling atomic emission spectrochemical analytical curves. The generation of analytical curves and their routine control are considered as separate although interrelated operations. This practice is applicable to atomic emission spectrometers.
1.1.1 Since computer programs are readily available to run multiple linear regressions that can be used to generate analytical curves and since most instruments include this feature, this practice does not go into detail on the procedure. However, some recommendations are given on evaluating the equations that are generated.
