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

using model chemistry: LSDA/cc-pVTZ

States and conformations

State Conformation minimum conformation conformer description state description
1 1 yes C2V 1A1
Energy calculated at LSDA/cc-pVTZ
Energy at 0K-333.450958
Energy at 298.15K 
HF Energy-333.450958
Nuclear repulsion energy159.378517
The energy at 298.15K was derived from the energy at 0K and an integrated heat capacity that used the calculated vibrational frequencies.
