The therapy processes of tumor cells by using  NPs such as metal zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) are studied for many cases.NPs are the multidisciplinary nanostructure molecules which are being used in the diagnosis and dealing of the demanding diseases such as cancer. This study is achieved by theoretical method is called curve fitting that simulates the experimental results of the researchers [7,8].  In this paper, we summarize the effects of ZnO nanoparticles and we note the intensity variation with a degree of diffraction and also the variation of absorbance with wavelength in the boundary range of time. One notices that the our consequences for the NPs match with the experimental results [7,8] and introduced the polynomial equations for intensity and absorbance. From these equations, the results can be  expanded to limit variable values to test the changes of treatment behaviors.
