Unformatted text preview: 2 + ions when H 2 is ionized by a fast charged particle? Just sketch your answer and give your reasoning. (c ) If the target is a D 2 molecule instead, does the answer to the question in part (b) change? Give your reasoning. 3. The oxygen atom has eight electrons. What is the ground state configuration (L and S) of the oxygen atom? What are the configurations of the first two excited states of the oxygen atom and what are their radiative decay modes? 4. For the O 2 molecules, identify the molecular orbitals occupied by the electrons. It turns out that O 2 has total spin equals to one. Explain why this has to do with the fact that the water molecule has a bond angle (H-O-H angle) of about 105 degrees....
