All results from a given calculation for BrONO2 (Bromine nitrate)

using model chemistry: LSDA/cc-pVTZ

States and conformations

State Conformation minimum conformation conformer description state description
1 1 yes CS 1A'
Energy calculated at LSDA/cc-pVTZ
Energy at 0K-2850.394477
Energy at 298.15K 
HF Energy-2850.394477
Nuclear repulsion energy336.565010
The energy at 298.15K was derived from the energy at 0K and an integrated heat capacity that used the calculated vibrational frequencies.
