Series by Ali and TBV
In Part I, we learned the effects of altering the left and right integration limits, and in Part II, we learned about background and background subtraction, both involving a single peak.
Here in Part III, we'll see some of the surprising results when you have more than one peak and they get close enough together.
Figure 11 shows the addition of another peak with identical o/oo value to our original peak )-27). They are positioned so that their tails just overlap. Although not perceptable to the naked eye, this has raised the left hand tail of our original peak slightly. This minor co-elution has resulted in a measured value of -27.4. The true value for this peak is -27.
In Part IV, we'll see what can happen when there are three peaks (and you only think there are two).
Reminder: you can try scenarios yourself with our spreadsheet. (It's hours of Fun!)
