Considering the water vapor molecule for ka > or = J/2 >> 1 as a symmetric top, the simple analytical Pade form for vibrational rotational energy levels was proposed. The rotational spectroscopic parameters for ground and 010 vibrational states of H2O molecule in the framework of this model have been obtained with good prediction. The absorption coefficient… CONTINUE READING
