### P.E Experiment

" Can molecular spectroscopy be used to identify molecules?" Is the answer no, since the bonds between electrons within the molecule make it complicated to excite electrons?

Spectroscopy is actually a very common tool used to identify molecules, especially in organic chemistry. Spectroscopy isn't covered in Chem 14A; it is discussed extensively in Chem 14C. If you are curious, some spectroscopic techniques include IR, UV, H-NMR, and C-NMR.

Yes, molecular spectroscopy is used to identify molecules because of the precise frequencies emitted by different molecules. The process of molecular spectroscopy seems pretty complicated, I'll link an article about it below in case you're curious.

Hope this helps!
