A comprehensive study of theoretical atomic absorbances has been made for most analytically useful elements, the only exceptions being the rare earths. These data have been compared with experimentally determined atomic absorbances in many cases. The importance of the low lying energy
levels has been emphasized as well as the need for better atomic transition probability data. The choice of analysis line is discussed from both the theoretical and experimental points of view, and tables of relative atomic absorbances are given with their temperature variations where
