Problem P15G.2

Continues from the previous problem.

(a) Consider a dimer formed of monomers which have $$\mu_{\mathrm{mon}}=4.00 \mathrm{D}$$, $$\tilde{v}_{\mathrm{mon}}=25000 \mathrm{~cm}^{-1}$$, and r=0.50 nm. Plot a graph to show how the energies (expressed as a wavenumber) of the excited states, $$\tilde{v}_{\pm}$$ vary with the angle $$\theta$$.

(b) Now expand the treatment given above to a chain of N monomers with $$\mu_{\text {mon }}=4.00 \mathrm{D}, \tilde{v}_{\text {mon }}=25000 \mathrm{~cm}^{-1}$$, and r = 0.50 nm. For simplicity, assume that $$\theta=0$$ and that only nearest neighbours interact with interaction energy $$\tilde{V}$$ (expressed here as a wavenumber). For example the hamiltonian matrix for the case N = 4 is

This matrix is analogous to the one that characterizes a band in a solid (Section 15C.1b) and so the eigenvalues (which in this case are the wavenumber of the transitions) can be written down by analogy with eqn 15C.1. Calculate the wavenumber of the lowest energy transition for N = 5, 10, and 15, and then generalize your result for large N.

(c) How does the transition dipole moment of the lowest energy transition vary with the size of the chain?

General Chemistry 1 Two elements are a binary compound. Covalent binary compounds are compounds composed of two non-metals (elements above the stair step). Alloys are a mixture of two metals (NaK). Ionic compounds are a mixture of metals and non-metals. Naming: Depends on the type of mixture. Ionic compounds do not use prefixes while covalent compounds use prefixes. One- mono Two-di Three-tri Four-tetra Five-penta Six-hexa Seven-hepta Eight-octa Nine-nona ten-deca Naming covalent compounds you write the first element out, and indicate how many with the prefix. Your second element do the same but with the second element it will end in -ide (Fluorine to Fluoride, Bromine to Bromide, Oxygen to Oxide, etc.). For example, CO = carbon monoxide CO2 = carbon dioxide P2O5 = diphosphorus pentoxide -With compounds containing hydrogen, we do not use prefixes (H2S = hydrogen sulfide) Ionic Compounds - composed of ions -ions are atoms or groups of atoms with a net charge. -simple ions = atoms with a net charge. -complex ions (polyatomic) = more than one atom with a net charge. -When we make our compounds they have ti have a neutral charge by definition. -Cations = positively charged & typically made of metals. -Anions = negatively charged & typically made of non-metals (Metals like to lose electrons while non-metals like to gain electrons.) -Cations + anions = ionic compound -Simple Ions = representative elements gain or lose electrons to have the same number of electrons as noble gases.
