An improved method for the tabulation of analytical data, obtained by addition and successive dilution procedures for spectrochemical analysis, is presented. The author's previous work shows that the solution of the first approximation diverges at some dilution factor smaller than unity when the slope of the working curve of added series is greater than that of unadded series. By obtaining the distance between this position and the origin, and taking it as a correction factor for zero-order approximation, tabulation of the analytical value, in the case of β>α, is carried out. One parameter of the calculation is deleted by normalizing the spectral intensity; therefore, the tabulation can be simplified.
