All results from a given calculation for BrNO (Nitrosyl bromide)

using model chemistry: PBEPBE/6-311G**

States and conformations

State Conformation minimum conformation conformer description state description
1 1 yes CS 1A'
Energy calculated at PBEPBE/6-311G**
Energy at 0K-2703.555147
Energy at 298.15K 
HF Energy-2703.555147
Nuclear repulsion energy136.104094
The energy at 298.15K was derived from the energy at 0K and an integrated heat capacity that used the calculated vibrational frequencies.
