In the discussion of [Eq.] (1) they assumed that the energy expression for the molecule consisted of a sum of squares of coordinates and momenta, and treated the problem by the methods of classical statistical mechanics. In this paper the former assumption is retained, but we will attempt to indicate the nature of the modifications which must be made when the motions of the molecule are quantized.
