We have used a simple model potential to calculate Rydberg series in N2, O2, CO, NO, ethylene, and benzene. The model potential for a molecule is taken as the sum of atomic potentials, which are calibrated to atomic data and contain no further parameters. Our results agree with experimentally measured values to within 5%–10% in all cases. We apply our results to several unresolved problems connected with the above molecules and indicate some of the applications which we foresee for model calculations.
