1.1 These test methods cover the atomic absorption determination of silver in water. Three test methods are given as follows:
|Test Method A-Atomic Absorp-tion-Chelation-Extraction|| 1 to 10 g/L||7 to 15|
|Test Method B-Atomic Absorp-tion-Direct0.1 to 10 mg/L||16 to 24|
|Test Method C-Atomic Absorp-tion-Graphite Furnace|| 1 to 25 g/L25 to 33|
