  6. j is the quantum number which measures the total angular momentum of the molecule and j-m is equivalent to Kratzer's ρ. (Cf. Eq. 3a below.) Bell uses the symbols m′, m, m0′ for the quantities here designated as m,j,ρ respectively.
  7. ρ is usually assumed to be ½ for the HC1 bands. The analysis given below makes 0.4925 the most probable value of ρ. The large discrepancy between Mr. Bell's value of ρ and the others is due to the fact that he uses negative values of j for the negative branch of the band and fails to change the sign of ρ with that of j. Thus the absolute values of m which he uses in connection with the negative branch are not the same as those for the positive branch.

  10. Kratzer gives larger values of δ for the upper electronic level associated with cyanogen, mercury, and zinc bands analysed by him. In the case of cadmium the reverse is true, but δ is here fairly small for both initial and final states.

  14. The author is informed by Professor Birge that the analysis of the vibrational energy values associated with electronic bends indicates that the coefficient δ of the cubic term in the expression for An is generally negligible, even though the terms of higher degree must be taken into account.
