Textbook Problem

# A LiBr molecule oscillates with a frequency of 1.70 × 10 13 Hz. (a) What is the difference in energy in eV between allowed oscillator states? (b) What is the approximate value of n for a state having an energy of 1.0 eV?

To determine

(a)

The difference in energy in eV between allowed oscillator states

Explanation

Given:

Frequency of oscillation =f=1.7Ã—1013Â Hz

Difference in energy =E=?

Plank's constant =h=6.63Ã—10âˆ’34

Formula Used:

Difference in Energy is given as

â€ƒâ€ƒE=hf

Calculation:

Difference in energy is given as

â€ƒâ€ƒE=hf

Inserting the values

â€ƒâ€ƒE=(6.63Ã—10âˆ’34)(1

To determine

(b)

The approximate value of "n"
