H atom Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 H atom electron

Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 electron Step 1: Hamiltonian Step 2: trial wave function Overlap integral: Normalization:

Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 Use the trial wave function: Hydrogen Hamiltonian with first nucleus Hydrogen Hamiltonian with second nucleus Cross terms Step 3: expectation value of H

Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 Direct integral Dexchange integral X Pb. 7.8 Eigenstates of Individual hydrogen atoms

Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 where direct integral exchange integral Finally…!

Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 Step 4: Minimization First include the proton-proton interaction ! where x = R/a

Hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + Phys 452 Step 4: Minimization Presence of a minimum: Evidence of bonding Equilibrium separation distance:

Quiz 15 Phys 452 The binding energy for the hydrogen molecule ion H 2 + is experimentally found to be 2.8eV. What can we predict about the binding energy E estimated with the variational principle? A. E > 2.8 eV B. E < 2.8 eV C. E = 2.8 eV D. Can be any value E. Can not tell
