turbidimetry

 [ter″bĭ-dim´ĕ-tre]
the measurement of the turbidity of a liquid.

tur·bi·dim·e·try

(tŭr'bi-dim'ĕ-trē),
A method for determining the concentration of a substance in a solution by the degree of cloudiness or turbidity it causes or by the degree of clarification it induces in a turbid solution.
[turbidity + G. metron, measure]

turbidimetry

[tur′bidim′ətrē]
Etymology: L, turbidus, confused; Gk, metron, measure
measurement of the turbidity (cloudiness) of a solution or suspension in which the amount of transmitted light is quantified with a spectrophotometer or estimated by visual comparison with solutions of known turbidity.
