Atomic Physics and Related Subjects.: Communications to Nature.: Moment of Inertia of Hydrogen from Raman Effect

Article metrics


F. RASETTI (Phys. Rev., 34, 367; 1929) has recently obtained accurate data on the Raman effect for gaseous hydrogen. From his data it is possible to calculate extremely precise values of B0 and B1. This is very fortunate, for it is now possible, from band spectra, to obtain an accurate value of B0 only by extrapolation, as has been shown in the preceding letter by Hyman and Jeppesen. Because of the importance of this constant, it has seemed advisable to make a searching analysis of Rasetti's data, using all known theoretical relations.
