1B. Next we zoom in on the lowest energy absorption band Absorbance of CO 2110 2140 Wavenumbers cm 2170 2180 2100 2120 2130 2150 2160 On the graph, the label P and R branches of the spectrum Fill in the table below Branch Label Starting J Frequency Final J P(2) P(3) R(0 R(2) Using the absorption energies of the peaks in your table, estimate Bo and B1 How much does the CO bond length change at v 1 vs v 0? iv

Solutions

Expert Solution

i) P branch is due to transition of and R
branch for
, is the
difference of two consecutive rotational energy level.

P lines lie left to 2140 cm-1 wave number and R lines
is to the right to 2146.8 cm-1( though the values are
not seen clearly).

ii) frequency=velocity of light*wave number

branch level frequency starting J final J
P(1) 1 0
P(2) 2 1
P(3) 3 2
R(0) 0 1
R(1) 1 2
R(2) 2 3

[please check the frequency values from the spectra, they are
not visible properly, I tried my best though.]
