vibrational energy

vibrational energy

[vī′brā·shən·əl ′en·ər·jē]
(physical chemistry)
For a diatomic molecule, the difference between the energy of the molecule idealized by setting the rotational energy equal to zero, and that of a further idealized molecule which is obtained by gradually stopping the vibration of the nuclei without placing any new constraint on the motions of electrons.
