Analysis of Atomic Displacements in Water

 

An illustration of the counting procedure of displacements for a nonlinear molecule – water.

Click the structures to see the displacement animated in 3D. Three translations and three rotations.

The three atom nonlinear molecule has 3×3-6=3 vibrational modes.
