The frequencies of these motions may be calculated based upon the mass of the atoms and the strength of the bonds. Much like the motion of a spring is calculated in a physics class. The animations that are presented here are based upon this type of calculation.
The IR spectrum of CO2 (4.0 kPa total pressure) is shown below. You may select the animations by clicking on the image, or from the menu below.
