These terms are used when a sample of a bulk system is divided, possibly a number of times, before actually used in an analysis. For example, a water sample from a well * This example is offered for illustration only. Modern precision agriculture utilizes geographical positioning systems (GPS) for sampling and for determining fertilizer needs. edu/BODY SS402 (as of April 22, 2002). 1 T reatment of municipal water with chlorine and ammonia results in the formation of chloramines, a long-lasting disinfectant.

The amount of radioactive plutonium in a sample can be measured by alpha spectroscopy, a technique for counting the alpha radiation. The technique is used at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico in order to monitor employees for exposure. Sample preparation is rather involved. A sample of urine or fecal matter is obtained and treated with calcium phosphate to precipitate the plutonium from solution. This mixture is then centrifuged, and the solids that separate are dissolved in 8 M nitric acid and heated to convert the plutonium to the +4 oxidation state.

If storage is necessary, samples may be stored for up to 24 h at 4 C, or indefinitely, at 4 C, if sulfuric acid is added (2 mL of concentrated acid per liter). In such samples, however, nitrate and nitrite cannot be differentiated.
