We will be using the old style “IR” clickers. We will begin using them in class on
The rotational levels are closely spaced compared to the vibrational levels (with a separation of
). For CO, the rotational constant B = 1.93 cm
E/hc = BJ(J+1),
and kT = 69.4 cm
at 100K. Hence, several rotational levels are populated even at 100K, and increasingly more as
the temperature is raised.
