High Mass spectrometry:
On a mass spectrum of a high mass spectrometry, the abundance of ions wouldn't be relative but exact, right?
what does this mean? Ions strike a detector, accept electrons, lose their charge and create a current which is proportional to the abundance of each ion.
So lets say the current is 10A will the abundance me 10%?
Also, explain m/z to me? why is mass always 1?
Lastly, acceleration - are the positive ions propelled by a positive plate, focused to form of a beam of ions and them attracted to a negative plate to keep it accelerating? My chemistry doesn't mention a positive and a negative plate..just a negative plate...
