Microwave spectroscopy
« on: December 31, 2011, 09:41:12 AM »
The rotational constant B for H35Cl was measured to be 10.5909 cm-1. Calculate the values for H37Cl and 2D35Cl.

 B=h/(8pi^2)(I)(c)

10.5909= h/(8pi^2)(I)(c)


do I find the moment of inetira (I) this way for H35CL? ...and then calculate the reduced mass for H37CL? Then giving me a new value for I by the equation ..r squared = u/I

Where or how would i get the value for the bond length/ internecleur distance (these are the same right?) so i could calculate the new I

Maybe im doing this whole question wrong.

Help would be appriciated
Thanks :)

Thanks :)

Assume bond length doesn't change. You don't need to know its exact value.

H35Cl: B= 10.5909cm^-1

reduced mass for H37CL is calculated to be : 2.8003*10^-54Kg

Now im thinking that if i want to calculate B for this specific compound il need to use B= h/8pi^2 (I)(c) Missing I here so need to calculate that by using : I=(R^2)(U)
But then see that i need R ( bond length figure) to be able to calculate I and so B.

There is obviously another way of doing this so that you dont need the bond length figure?

Starting with

$$ B = \frac h {8\pi^2cI} $$

and remembering that

$$ I = \mu R^2 $$

you can easily get

$$ \frac {B_{H^{35}Cl}} {B_{H^{37}Cl}} = \frac {\mu_{H^{37}Cl}} {\mu_{H^{35}Cl}} $$

(edit: that is, assuming R is constant).
