Resonant Frequency and Nitrogen
Date: Summer 2010
Do nitrogen bonds (in a molecule) have a resonance frequency?
I am not sure what you mean by "resonance frequency" but since it is
possible to do Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy using
nitrogen-15 as the target nuclei, then I would say that, yes,
nitrogen bonds have an active magnetic resonance that can be used to
image molecular structures or map a solid mass.

It is difficult to define the term "resonant frequency" because it depends
on what is "resonating" -- a bridge can have a certain set of resonating
frequencies undergoes. It is also possible that a microscopic, or
submicroscopic(s), system can refer to frequencies involving "resonance"
or "resonating" frequencies. The point is that the term "resonance
frequency" needs careful definition to avoid utter confusion because
of the lack of a prerequisite definition. Go back and determine which
of several kinds of "resonance" is being referred to. A Google search
on the phrase "resonant" or "resonance" is being invoked. To pursue the
terminology you need more details about the details.
