An expression is obtained for the analog of the Ladenburg-Levi function for the electron-vibrational band of a diatomic molecule under the following assumptions: 1) the profile of the rotational line in the band is Dopplerian; 2) the population of the rotational levels is governed by the Boltzman law; 3) the rotational lines in the band do not overlap; 4) we consider transitions between electron states, in which the change of the orbital quantum number is zero. The given function can be used in processing the results of measurements obtained by the method of a single mirror behind a tube, the method of two tubes, etc., during a discharge in molecular gases.
