The section on quantitative analysis begins with the well-known Beer-Lambert law that relates concentration to the measured absorbance.
To proceed from qualitative to quantitative analysis, one only has to determine the intensity of these bands, since by Beer-Lambert law the intensity on the absorbance scale is proportional to the concentration of the absorbing substance.
