Unformatted text preview: lot this on a log ­log scale as a function of temperature and compare to the typical photoelectric heating rate. What is the range of pressures over which you predict that two phases are allowed? #2. Energy levels of molecules. [12 points] In dense environments, it is a common occurrence for molecules to reach a thermal distribution of rotational energy levels. (a) At T = 20 K – a typical temperature deep inside a molecular cloud – compute the probability distribution for J in the 12C16O molecule. (b) Draw qualitatively the equilibrium ratio of ortho...
