A curious mind wants to know...the order on a GCMS...

I have always wondered....what is the order of a GCMS?  I can eliminate alphabetical and descending order of quantity...hehehe... But how the heck are those things ordered?

    You can see that the order of the peaks is in ascending order based on the Retention Time (RT).  RT is the amount of time elapsed from the injection of the sample in the GC to the appearance of the peak correlating to that particular component on the chromatogram.

    Thank you, Mark, I knew there was some type of order.  That makes sense.
