col·or·im·e·try

(kŭl'ŏr-im'ĕ-trē),
A procedure for quantitative chemical analysis, based on comparison of the color developed in a solution of the test material with that in a standard solution; the two solutions are observed simultaneously in a colorimeter, and quantitated on the basis of the absorption of light.

colorimetry

[kol′ərim′ətrē]
measurement of the intensity of color in a fluid or substance as compared with that in a standard solution. See also spectrophotometry.
