Spectroscopy is the study of how matter reacts to electromagnetic radiation. Like light, electromagnetic radiation exhibits properties of both waves and particles, making both wavelength and frequency variables that may be used in spectroscopy. If you feel that you may be falling behind your peers in this challenging course, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a certified Spectroscopy tutor who can help unlock your academic potential.
Here are some of the central concepts you may review during Spectroscopy tutoring sessions:
- Using Spectroscopy to Identify Substances
- Different Types of Spectroscopy (MS, UV-Vis, IR, NMR)
- Spectrometry (A Spectroscopic technique that determines how much of a chemical is present)
- Determining Structural Information About Organic Molecules
Spectroscopy has both theoretical and practical components that your tutor may go over. They might start with the theoretical side by making flashcards to help you remember the differences between the different types of Spectroscopy. MS means Mass Spectroscopy, UV-Vis uses ultraviolet or visible light, IR uses infrared radiation, and NMR stands for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. Each of these is measured using different tools on a different scale for different purposes, information that flashcards can condense into a bite-sized package that's easier to study.
