LCAO Approximation to Bonding Molecular Orbital in Hydrogen
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration shows the simplest LCAO (linear combination of atomic orbitals) representing the bonding molecular orbital in molecular hydrogen. The top graphic shows the electron cloud plotted along the internuclear axis. The separation between nuclei (in Bohr atomic units) can be varied.
