The electronic partition function for H 2 O ( g ) at 373 K is to be calculated. Concept introduction: The point at which the bond between the two atoms become nonexistent and the molecule exists as two separated atoms is known as dissociation limit. The relation between D 0 and D e is given by the formula, D 0 = D e − 1 2 h v Where, • D 0 represents dissociation energy. • h is the Plank’s constant. • v is vibrational frequency. • D e is the minimum potential energy of ground electronic state with respect to the zero points.

Solutions

Chapter 18, Problem 18.15E
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The electronic partition function for H2O(g) at 373K is to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

The point at which the bond between the two atoms become nonexistent and the molecule exists as two separated atoms is known as dissociation limit. The relation between D0 and De is given by the formula,

D0=De12hv

Where,

D0 represents dissociation energy.

h is the Plank’s constant.

v is vibrational frequency.

De is the minimum potential energy of ground electronic state with respect to the zero points.
