Hello Anon,

don't be afraid but 1.5 is also acceptable in labs...

Where does one obtain the tailing factor for a peak? Is it the same thing as the peak symmetry?

The values are reciprocal. TF of 1.5 = Sym of .67

They may be calculated from 10% of peak height or 5% of peak height, depending upon the source of the definition.
