I understand that the degree of freedom is the number of ways in which a molecule can acquire energy. I don't want you to explain the definition, but I want to see how it works. Please explain how is that a real thing, I want to see it. Try to describe the ways in which the molecule can acquire energy . I really can't see it.

  • $\begingroup$ Forget the energy. Degrees of freedom are the ways in which the molecule can stretch or bend. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Neretin Oct 13 '18 at 5:31
  • $\begingroup$ @IvanNeretin Whoa what is that sir. How can we tell the ways in which molecules bend. Why can't they bend however they want to. This is more confusing. $\endgroup$ – vigneshwaran Oct 13 '18 at 5:33

    $\begingroup$ @IvanNeretin I don't study biology. But it maybe due to the bone joint design. Sir maybe I get this: Nature has its own designs $\endgroup$ – vigneshwaran Oct 13 '18 at 6:11

    $\begingroup$ See, there is only one variable: it is the distance between them. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Neretin Oct 14 '18 at 14:59
