Unformatted text preview: tick mark on the negative z1 -axis in figure 5.1. Similarly electron 2 is around the right proton, so its z2 positions are clustered around the positive value zrp indicated by the tick mark on the positive z2 axis. This means the wave function, Ψ(0, 0, z1 , 0, 0, z2 ), will look as shown in the left picture of figure 5.1. It will be mostly in the quadrant of negative z1 and positive z2 . Similarly ψr ψl will look as the second picture. Here the positions of electron 1 cluster around the positive position of the right proton and those of electron 2 around the negative position of the left proton. When you average the two states symmetrically, you get a two-blob picture like the third picture. Now it is electron 1 around the left proton and electron 2 around the right one or...
