Abstract
A program is described for the IBM 1130 computer for processing and plotting of Mass Spectral Data. The raw data measured from the light sensitive chart paper used on the mass spectrometer is normalized by assigning the value 100 to the most abundant peak and corresponding values to the remainder of the peaks to give the relative abundance of each mass fragment. The fractional abundance of each mass fragment is also calculated. All possible metastable transitions are calculated and compared to the observed metastable ions, with a calculation and printout of the probability of each possible transition. A 7 inch by 15 inch bar graph of the spectrum is plotted by the Calcomp plotter for convenient storage and subsequent reference.
