We have observed a number of isolated, small molecular clouds in the (CO)-C-12, (CO)-C-13 and (CO)-O-18 molecular lines using the 22-m Mopra telescope. We perform an LTE analysis to find optical depths, column densities and observed masses of each of the cores. A virial analysis suggests that all the cores are consistent with being in virial equilibrium.
