Unformatted text preview: something of a curiosity. If you find any original publications that are not in the collection, please make a copy for the lab. Explain why the polyatomic atom anions measured as solids fail to show rotational fine structure as do HCl and DCl gases. Keeping in mind that your two polyatomic anions are quite similar, account for differences in the spectra of the two species. Questions 1) a) Explain how polyatomic molecules can have some vibrational modes that do not give rise to vibrational IR bands (IR- inactive). b) Predict the shape of a CS2 molecule. List all of the vibrational modes for this molecule and label each as IR- active or IR- inactive. 2) Give the number of normal vibra...
