One reason carbon monoxide (CO) is toxic in that it bind to the blood protein hemoglobin more
strongly than oxygen does. The hemoglobin – CO bond absorbs radiation of 1953 cm–1, which are in
units of wavenumbers. Wavenumber is defined as the reciprocal of wavelength, in units of cm.
Calculate the wavelength, in nm, frequency, and energy of the absorbed radiation.
