I did a TDDFT calculation to get the emission spectra of my molecule. Here are the first five roots for the emission calculation:

     Occ.  118  a   ---  Virt.  123  a   -0.05942 X

For my case, exp. emission is at 492 nm or 2.52 eV. In this case which root should I take to compare with the experiment? Should I always take the first root following the Kasha's rule?

    $\begingroup$ +1 but from now on, please press the "code" button and put your output files in code blocks. I edited it for you this time (and last time), please take a look at the edit history! $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Feb 10 at 4:58
