      The secular equation (GF - Eλ)L = 0 contains more force constants than can be calculated from the equations formulated using the frequencies. For a 3 × 3 matrix, there are 6 force constants but only 3 frequencies. Attempts were made by others to estimate all the 6 constants to satisfy the frequencies and Coriolis constants and rotation distortion constants. However, many attempts are not made in these estimations to satisfy the intensities. A full complement of equations is derived to evaluate all the force constants combining the intensity equationsI =L’A withLL’ =G and evaluated the force constants ofA1 species of CH3Cl and CD3Cl. A simple analysis of a 2 × 2 matrix shows thatF12/F22=G12−1/G22−1 as reported earlier.
