A member asked:

What happens if two different amino acids have the same concentration, does the same amount of light pass through them?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Spectroscopy: Not only is the amount of light passing through a solute in solution dependent on the properties of the solute, but also the frequencies at which the light is absorbed. The various amino acids absorb light in different parts of the spectrum, and so depending on what part of the spectrum you are taking your light measurement, you will very likely detect differences among them.
