Question
Is it possible to carry out conversions between extinction and transmission?
Summary
Can transmission (%Trans) be converted into extinction (Ext) and vice versa?
Answer
The conversion can be carried out using the following formulas

Ext = log10 (100 / %Trans)
%Trans = 10-Ext * 100            or:       %Trans = 100 / 10 Ext
