Covalent bonds in a molecule absorb radiation in the IR region and vibrate at characteristic frequencies.

a) The C---O bond absorbs radiation of wavelength 9.6um. What frequency (in s-1) corresponds to that wavelength?

b) The H---Cl bond has a frequency of vibration of 8.652x10^13 Hz. What wavelength (in um) corresponds to that frequency?

    speed of light in m/s = wavelength in m x frequency in hz.
    That will do both problems.
