Calibration graphs. Curve—galvanometer reading (mm) on linear scale. Straight line—galvanometer reading (arbitrary units) on correctly fitting intensity scale.

Fig. 3a
Fig. 3a

Calibration curve with a poorly fitting intensity scale, and a 45-degree reference line.

Fig. 3b
Fig. 3b

Percentage deviation curve corresponding to calibration curve 3a.

Fig. 3c
Fig. 3c

Numerical deviation curves corresponding to calibration curve 3a. The lowest curve is obtained when the reference line shown in 3a is used. The others in order are obtained as the reference line is moved to the right, 5 percent at a time.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Equivalent calibration curves. Provided background is subtracted from each line, the intensity ratio calculated for a pair of lines will be identical whether (a) scale readings are taken as correct, or (b) any one of the above curves is used to translate readings to “true” intensities.
