Unformatted text preview: , where is in the units of sec1 . 2.1 Solution The energy for a given vibrational state, n , and rotational state, J , is given by (considering the higher corrections for anharmonicity, centrifugal distortion, and vibrationrotation coupling: E =D e + n + 1 2 h e n + 1 2 h x e e + h B n J ( J + 1)h D c J 2 ( J + 1) 2 Compute the above expression for the two states given. This gives the energy in convenional units. To convert to wavenumbers, we divide by h c , where c is the speed of light. 1...
