# (a) Interpretation: The length of the mirror derives in a spectrometer at resolution of 0.010 cm − 1 is to be calculated. Concept introduction: The FTIR-stands for the Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. Generally, this technique is used to determine the organic, inorganic and polymeric materials. The length of the mirror derives in a spectrometer is the half of the distance between the mirror derives. The distance between the mirror derives is reciprocal of the resolution of the FTIR spectrometer.
