Sampling that uses filters or adsorbents to collect chemicals from the air The filters or adsorbents are sent to an outside lab for analysis to determine the exact quantity of each chemical in the sample
Quantitative means relating to different sizes or amounts of things. the advantages of quantitative and qualitative research. + quantitatively quan·ti·ta·tive·ly We cannot predict quantitatively the value or the cost of a new technology. relating to amounts rather than to the quality or standard of something quantitative analysis/methods/data etc
using numbers i e more than qualitative By actually measuring the mass of the falling body, and its surface area, as well as its rate of fall, I was able to show in a quantitative way that the effect of air resistance is to cause small compact objects to fall faster than large flat ones
