All results from a given calculation for ONONO (Nitrosyl nitrite)

using model chemistry: MP4/3-21G

States and conformations

State Conformation minimum conformation conformer description state description
1 1 yes C2V 1A1
Energy calculated at MP4/3-21G
Energy at 0K-332.032038
Energy at 298.15K 
HF Energy-331.291380
Nuclear repulsion energy146.251508
The energy at 298.15K was derived from the energy at 0K and an integrated heat capacity that used the calculated vibrational frequencies.
