This a self-test problem for physical chemistry.
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas because it binds strongly to hemoglobin, preventing the transport of oxygen by blood. The bond in a 12C16O molecule has a force constant of 1860 N/m. Calculate the vibrational frequency, v, of the molecule and the energy separation between any two neighboring vibrational energy levels.
I used the equation: v= 1/2pi*(force constant/reduced mass)1/2 I got 6.860 g which I converted to kg. . The answer in the book is 64.32 THz but I don’t understand how they got it.
