The vibrational energy spacings for the hydrogen halides are :
HF: 3958.4 cm-1
H35Cl: 2885.6 cm-1
HBr: 2559.3 cm-1
HI: 2230.3 cm-1
Calculate the force constants. Do you notice any trends in the force constants? Suggest an
explanation for the trend or the lack of a trend.
so F=-kx but since there is no displacement, is there some other equation
x(t) = xo sin(omega"t) with " omega=square root(k/m)= 2Piv
is this the equation to use, were omega is the frequency.
