# (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 ### Principles of Instrumental Analysis
