Gloria Anderle· Fairleigh Dickinson UniversityThe untis km/mol is not an experimental quantity but is a computational on that is derived from the following integration based on Beer's law (Beer-Lambert):

A = 2.303|(integral sign)E(v) dv

Where A is absolute absorbance at a given frequency in kg/m, E(v) is the molar absorbtivity of the substance at freq v.

This unit allows the comparison of computationally determined absorbances with experimental ones.

For further information on the calculation see the open source article:
