## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

Not completely sure, but I believe equation is:

Cx = bCs/mVx

cx = concentration of sample

b= y-intercept

cs= concentration of standard

m=slope

Vx=volume of sample

## The Attempt at a Solution

I plotted the values on a graph with Absorbance on the Y-axis and [Pb] added on the X-axis, and put a trendline extending through the X axis. Eqn I came up with is y=.209x+2.211

My teacher was very vague with standard addition and through searching the web it said the best way to figure out the initial concentration is through spiking the samples. I am really not sure where to else to go with this problem since my equation above has several variables that aren't given in the problem statement (volume, concentration of standard).
