Take nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy for example. It uses the inherent property of atomic and molecular structures having specific magnetic resonant frequencies to elucidate the presence of certain chemical groups in the molecule. For example, if CH3Cl was put into NMR spectroscopy, we would be able to elucidate that there are 3 hydrogen atoms ...
