All results from a given calculation for FNO3 (Fluorine nitrate)

using model chemistry: CISD/6-31G*

States and conformations

State Conformation minimum conformation conformer description state description
1 1 yes CS 1A'
Energy calculated at CISD/6-31G*
Energy at 0K-378.899251
Energy at 298.15K-378.893935
HF Energy-378.144838
Nuclear repulsion energy187.104273
The energy at 298.15K was derived from the energy at 0K and an integrated heat capacity that used the calculated vibrational frequencies.
