Vibrations in a solution

  • #1
Hi, I was wondering if someone can explain to me the following. If I have a vibrating molecule in a solution, what effect would this vibration have on other particles in my solution which are different. Can the vibration be the same for them if they are not excited (do not vibrate due to excitation) can they duplicate the vibration of the excited molecule with lower intensity?

You cannot classify vibrations as "this is due to excitation / this is not". Every vibration is an excitation relative to the ground state.

In general, excited molecules can transfer some energy to molecules nearby.
