The limit of continuous absorption for Br2 gas occurs at 19750cm^-1. The dissociation energy that occurs is:

Br2(gorund) = Br(ground) + Br(excited)

The transition of ground bromine atom to an excited one corresponds to a wave number of 3685 cm^-1:

Br(ground) = Br(excited)

Calculate the energy increase for the process in cm^-1 and eV:

Br2(ground) = 2Br(ground)

I think I need to use: v(limit) = D'0 + v0 = D0 +v(atomic)

What I have so far is:

Br2(ground) = Br2(exited) = 19750-3685 = 16065 cm^-1

So, D'0 = 16065cm^-1. Then Br2(ground) = 2(16065) = 32130 cm^-1

Can someone check if I have this correct? This Hw is due in like 2 hours.

Thanks.
