Polyelectronic atoms 3 energy contributions K.E. of electrons P.E. of attraction between electrons and nucleus P.E. of repulsion between electrons The repulsion between electrons leads to the electron correlation problem. In a particle view you can imagine how their motions are correlated. The second electron tries to stay as far away as possible from the first so that if the first electron moves, so does the second. They are not independent motions. The same effect occurs in a wave treatment. This means that the Schrodinger equation CANNOT be separated rigorously into equations which involve only one electron.

Experimentally: He He + + e - I.E. 1 = 2372 kJ He + He 2+ + e - I.E. 2 = 5248 kJ If the two electrons were uncorrelated you would expect that the first I.E and second I.E. would be equal.
