Carbon Dioxide Absorption Peak Using a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer, the spectrum of air ex- hibits absorption resonances due to carbon dioxide ( CO 2 ) and water vapor ( H 2 O ). The absorption “Spectrum of Air” is shown in the class notes as a plot of percent transmit- tance versus wavenumber, ν ,in cm - 1 . From the plot of the spectrum, determine, for the primary CO 2 absorption peak, the center wavenumber and the full-width-at-half- maximum of the peak. Put your answers in the blanks provided. Express your answers accurately to four signi±cant ±gures in
