Quantization of Vibratory Motion
When submicroscopic entities are examined sufficiently closely, many are found to be composite. Often the unit consists of relatively massive particles held together by oppositely charged, much less massive, light particles. Free movement of the center of mass of the unit is called ‘translation’, while free movement around the center is called ‘rotation’. We have already considered such motions.
