Simple molecule

This applet illustrates the simplest model for a ionized hydrogen molecule (two protons + one electron), treated as two hydrogen atoms in the ground state. The user can manipulate the internuclear distance (R).

This is a Java Applet created using GeoGebra from www.geogebra.org - it looks like you don't have Java installed, please go to www.java.com


· One of the two states is unable to form stable molecules. Wich one is it?
· What happens to the energy for R >> 0? And for R near to zero?
· Can you estimate the equilibrium distance?
