There are only the levels el and e 2. A diagram of the energy levels is shown in Fig. 2. This situation may arise for computation of the contribution to Cv from molecules with two rotational isomers of different energies. For convenience, one sets the energy e~ equal to zero. Energy e2 lies then higher by A e. Or, if one wants to express the energies in molar amounts, one multiplies A e by Avogadro's number N A and comes up with the molar energy difference A E in J mol -~. A similar change is necessary for kT; per mole, it becomes RT.

The sketches 3 - 6 in Fig. 13 illustrate the approximate C - H motions of the bending vibrations. The first type of motion involves the symmetrical bending of the hydrogens (3). The bending motion is indicated by the arrows. The next type of oscillation is the rocking motion (4). In this case both hydrogens move in the same direction and rock the chain back and forth. The third type of motion in this group, listed as number 5, is the wagging motion. One can think of it as a motion in which the two hydrogens come out of the plane of the paper and then go back behind the plane of the paper.

In this case the macromolecule is the random copolymer poly(oxybenzoate-co-oxynaphthoate), a high-strength material (VectraTM). The graph shows a rather small endotherm and a rather broad, possibly two-stage glass transition that stretches over more than 100 K. Without precise computation of the liquid and solid heat capacities, it would not have been possible to identify the glass transition and provide important characteristics for the practical application of the polymer. The broad glass transition is 30 (Abovethe endotherm the polymer is an anisotropic melt) I ' I Cp 3 0 0 ~ ~ l i _ Cp q u i d~ " [J/(K tool)] 200 solid Cpl experiml ~ ~ .
