    Abstract: In this paper, a comparison between two different analytical methods is described for arsenic determination. Water samples were directly determined for arsenic using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). Data from the study demonstrate differences in the accuracy of the analytical results depending on the As level concentration. Uncertainty plays an important role in this study.
