k = force constant (N/m) and m = reduced mass (kg).
Chapter 16 - 6
Estimation of frequencies of vibration for various groups possible when force constant known.
E.g.1 force constant of C=O bond is 1.23x103 N/m, determine vibrational frequency of this C=O group.

reduced mass for each of two bonds will be: mC = 1.99x1026 kg,
