Energy states and rotational states for molecules at room temperature

3. Probable energy states for molecules at room temperature

(a) Suppose we have an system that has the following allowed electronic energy states: 0.2 eV, 2.0 eV, 3.0 eV, 10eV. What is the probability of the system to be at each of these energy states at 350K, 1000K?

(b) Suppose we have a system that has the following allowed rotational energy states: 1.30E-03 eV, 2.1E-03 eV, 3.10E-03 eV. What is the probability of populating these rotational states at 300K and 5000K?

(c) From the above analysis what rotational and electronic states are you likely to find a typical molecule in at room temperature?

Solution Summary

This solution provides detailed calculations for finding the probability that a system will be found in a certain energy states and rational states.
