Unformatted text preview: the wavelength of the absorbed photons, the reduced mass, and the force constant. With ̃ ̃ ̃ . , the vibration frequency is The photon wavelength is = 2.55 The force constant k can be determined from √ ̃ This gives . The period of vibration is . The reduced mass is ̃ . 10. Oscillator. When carbon monoxide, 12C16O, is bound to the muscle-tissue protein myoglobin, the vibrational frequency of its stretching mode is 1945 cm-1. Compute the frequency of the same vibrational transition in 13C16O, assuming the force constant is not affected by the isotope change. The wavenumber can be computed via ̃ ̃ ̃ √ ̃ √ The reduced masses are ̃√ for for 13C16O. Fro...
