Eigensolutions, Wave equation, Bound state


The solutions for Morse potential energy function under the influence of Schr¨odinger equation are examined using supersymmetric approach. The energy equation obtained was used to generate eigenvalues forX1 +state of scandium monoiodide (ScI) and X3 state of nitrogen monoiodide (NI) respectively were obtained by imputing their respective spectroscopic parameters. The calculated results for the two molecules aligned excellently with the predicted/observed values.
