    it shows an infra red spectrum of ethanoic acid and shows
    a very broad trough between 2500 - 3300 cm ^-1 taking this from the point where
    the line graph starts to drop it looks more like 2800 - 3800 cm ^-1
    do you have to take these measurements from the centre
    as it is most accurate . The absorption starts from where the line starts to drop.
    why take it from the centre?
