62 CHAPTER 5. MULTIPLE-PARTICLE SYSTEMS vice-versa. But there is still almost no probability of finding both protons in the first quadrant, both near the right proton. Nor are you likely to find them in the third quadrant, both near the left proton. If you average the first two states antisymmetrically, you get the fourth picture. In the antisymmetric combination, the wave function is zero on the symmetry line between the blobs. You see that the states are really different when looked at in the full six-dimensional space. 5.2.4.2 Solution hmold-b Question: Based on the previous question, how would you think the probability density n ( z ) would look on the axis through the nuclei, again ignoring the existence of positions beyond the axis? Answer: For any state, the probability of finding electron 1 near a given z , regardless of where electron 2 is, is found by setting z 1 equal to z and integrating over all possible positions z 2 for electron 2. For the two-dimensional state ψ l ψ r shown in the left column of figure 5.2, you are

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
