Quantization of Rotatory Motion
Composite submicroscopic particles, such as molecules, atoms, or nuclei, exhibit not only motion from place to place (translation), but also internal motions that may be classified as rotations and vibrations. Each kind of movement is presumably governed by a state function whose form depends on the energy associated with the movement. When this energy is independent of the energies associated with the other motions, the corresponding state function is independent.
