1 . Consider a diatomic molecule irradiated by microwave and infrared light . For parts*
A - C Fill in the quantum numbers for the final state ('s ) after absorption of the indicated*
photon .
Note : " is the election quantum number and is equal to E ( ground state ) are
( excited state ) , " is the vibrational quantum number and*I is the rotational quantum
number .
A. Pure rotational
