### Atomic spectroscopy vs molecular

What is molecular spectroscopy and can it be used to identify molecules as atomic spectroscopy is used to identify elements?

### Re: Atomic spectroscopy vs molecular

Atomic spectroscopy refers to the study of electromagnetic radiation as absorbed an emitted by atoms, and molecular spectroscopy is the same thing except instead of having atoms you got molecules. Spectroscopy has a ton of applications and you can study the structures of atoms and molecules. Because of all the wavelengths being emitted by the systems, one can peep all the happenings in the electron configurations and excited and ground states. You can also find trace elements and such through emission spectrums, which is how one can identify a molecule. So the answer is "ye" I think... I hope...
