    The fundamental law governing light absorption, known as Beer's law, is: A = c L (5) where A = absorbance of the sample (also defined below in terms of light intensity) c = concentration of the absorbing species (mol/liter) L = path length traveled by the light beam through the sample (cm) = molar extinction coefficient of the absorbing species (L⋅mol-1⋅cm-1)

    Why do you think it is true, instead of just guessing? Any explanations?

    I got it, the absorbance is directly proportional to the concentration of the absorbing solute.
