Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They all should have a certain Rf point, even if you do the experiment again, because it measures how far they have travelled. The reason they move in different distance is due to capillary action

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this you should ask google! not a hard concept to understand. It talks about the movement due to surface tension, but u will get more detailed info if u google it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0absorb whatever the wavelength that the solution gives off. I dont remember exactly what it does in this lab as the one i did a month didnt involve the use of spectrometer.
