(a) Interpretation: Length of a mirror drive is to be determined in Michelson interferometer in such way that the produced resolution will be enough for the separation of IR peaks at 600.7 cm-1 and 600.4 cm-1. Concept introduction: Resolution is calculated by the difference of the wave number of both IR peaks. For the calculation of the length of the mirror, the following formula will be used: Δ ν ¯ = 1 δ Here, Δ ν ¯ = resolution of IR peaks δ = distance that traveled by mirror

Solutions

Chapter 7, Problem 7.23QAP
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

Length of a mirror drive is to be determined in Michelson interferometer in such way that the produced resolution will be enough for the separation of IR peaks at 600.7 cm-1 and 600.4 cm-1.

Concept introduction:

Resolution is calculated by the difference of the wave number of both IR peaks.

For the calculation of the length of the mirror, the following formula will be used:

Δν¯=1δ

Here,

Δν¯ = resolution of IR peaks

δ = distance that traveled by mirror

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

Length of a mirror drive is to be determined in Michelson interferometer in such a way that the produced resolution will be enough for the separation of IR peaks at 3002.5 cm-1 and 3008.6 cm-1.

Concept introduction:

Resolution is calculated by the difference in wave number of both IR peaks.

For the calculation of the length of the mirror, following formula will be used:

Δν¯=1δ

Here,

Δν¯ = resolution of IR peaks

δ = distance that travelled by mirror
