Specific Rotation Calculation in Optical Activity

Specific Rotation in Optical Activity in Chirality & Stereochemistry Video Tutorial Series by Leah Fisch

Specific Rotation calculations are a useful tool in optical activity.

This video will help you understand the factors influencing specific rotation such as observed rotation, g/mL, path-length, wavelength, and temperature.

You will see a detailed breakdown of the equation along with a few examples to follow along.
