Q8.1 Is a Boson or a Fermion? Justify your answer.
Q8.2 Calculate the degeneracy and Boltzman factor of the first 7 rotational levels
Q8.3 By dividing the intensity of the first 4 Anti-Stokes transitions by the degeneracy and the Boltzman factor for that transition work out the nuclei spin statistical weight for .
Q8.4 Given that the Y-Y bond length is 198.75pm calculate the mass of the nucleus and hence the identity of atom Y.
