Unformatted text preview: Problem Set 5 CHEM 482 Molecular Spectroscopy Fall 2009 Suggested completion date: December 9, 2009 (This assignment will not be collected.) Read the following sections in Atkins: 6.1, 6.2, 6.4-6.7, 6.9-6.15 7.1-7.4 (don’t worry about the specifics of 7.1a, 7.1b and 7.2) Solve the following in Atkins: Discussion Questions: 6.2, 6.4 (remove the word “equilibrium” from the question) 7.2, 7.4, 7.5 Exercises: 6.6b, 6.7b, 6.12b, 6.15b, 6.16b, 6.19b, 6.22b, 6.23b 7.2b, 7.4b Problems: 6.5, 6.14, 6.15 7.1 Supplemental Problem 7.1 Supplemental Problem 7.1 In this problem, you will predict the appearance of an electronic absorption spectrum for a diatomic molecule whose hypothetical electronic ground and first electronic excited states have the same equilibrium bond length, but different curvature. In all parts of this problem, ignore the effects of molecular rotations. Assume the two electronic states can be well-modeled as harmonic oscillators, as plotted below. The ground state is characterized by an equilibrium bond length...
