Find the specific heat capacity, for the following:

(a) An ideal diatomic gas undergoing rotation with no vibrations

(b) An ideal diatomic gas undergoing rotation with radial vibrations.

(a) We choose the z axis as the axis of rotation and as the angular coordinate about z.

Using Lagrangian mechanics and as our general coordinate. The kinetic energy T is:

So our Hamiltonian is:

We now look for eigenstates of the angular momentum squared quantum ...
