Homework Help: Intensity on IR-spectrum

    In the above diagram, what does the % of transmittance means?
    I know the % of transmittance is the reverse of % absorption, but there are more C-H bond per molecule than C=O, why the intensity for C=O is higher(higher absorption)? I really have no clues!
