First, the chamber in the Nicolet 6700 was purged with N. gas. Place clamps on the Claisen adapter just above the flask and on the Claisen just below where the nitrogen will enter. Do not remove, touch, or attempt to clean the windows. Carefully remove the hose nipple from the open end of the drying tube and carefully attach the gas cell’s hose nipple. [4] A. While this is a decent approximation, bonds do not behave like they do in the Harmonic Oscillator approximation (Figure 13.5.1). A classic among molecular spectra, the infrared absorption spectrum of HCl can be analyzed to gain information about both rotation and vibration of the molecule. HCN. Monty L. Fetterolf . The absorption lines shown involve transitions from the ground to first excited vibrational state of HCl, but also involve changes in the rotational state. While this is happening place the hose nipple that you just removed from the drying tube on one of the other Schlenk ports. CO 2. For exaple, unlike the parabola given in the Harmonic Oscillator approximation, atoms that are too far apart will dissociate. 6. 3. [3] E.K. Particles being described by wave mechanics are restricted to quantized energy levels. Light in the infrared region of the EM spectrum can be used to probe vibrational and rotational transitions. Other. 7a. Remove the gas cell from the desiccator (use two hands to carefully remove the desiccator’s lid and use two hands to carry the cell). Analytical software is used to derive an equation of the line from the two plots of 35Cl and 37Cl. Once the cell is completely purged of the acidic gases, remove the open tube from the indicator solution and close the stopcock on the gas cell leading to it. Perform the calculations described for He in reference 6 before attempting the HCl calculations as this will allow you to check whether you are performing the calculations correctly. In order to induce a change of the motional state by infrared radiation, the molecule must have a dipole moment (either a permanent one as in HCl or a uctuating one as in certain vibrations of CO 2).

An important concept in quantum mechanics is the idea of quantized energy levels and accordingly the quantum numbers associated with them. HBr. For example, improper preparation of the sample to be used in the experiment or misuse of the Nicolet 6700 could be potential causes of error. Other. This leads to an uncertainty of 2 MHz on the EF X transition frequencies, when a factor of eight is included to take into account the harmonic conversion and two-photon excitation. Constants were then derived for each of the isomers. Glossary . 2 and click OK. With the B values the energy of the pure vibrational transition (Q-branch! Do not get the needle too close to the SOCl2 and do not add the H2O/D2O mixture so quickly that the reaction splashes out of the flask. Taking the diatomic molecule HCl, if the hydrogen is replaced by its isotope deuterium, µ is doubled and therefore νe will be decreased by √2.

The experimental values were compared against literature values, the percent errors are shown below in Table 5: Table 5:  Percent Errors for the constants. Increase the flow to about 10 bubbles of nitrogen per second passing through the Schlenk line’s input bubbler (there should be little if any nitrogen flow through the Schlenk line’s exhaust bubbler) and start slowly stirring the SOCl2. The best demonstration of isotopic effects in vibrational spectra is to switch hydrogen for deuterium. Place the flask containing the SOCl2 in a beaker in the back of the hood. One condition of the rigid rotor is that the wave function must be identical when it rotated one full revolution. Let nitrogen flow through the gas cell for about 5 min. As you attach the cell to the rest of the apparatus you will see a lot of gas being discharged through the Schlenk line’s exhaust bubbler. (compare C-C, C=C, C≡C ) (c) The number of vibrational modes depends on how many atoms are there in the molecule. This frequency is in turn given by; √ =1 2 If you see water being drawn back into the tube, immediately close the stopcock on the gas cell leading to the solution and seek assistance.
