their 1s orbitals begin to overlap and each electron begins to
feel the attractive force of both protons.
feel Valence Bond Model of H2 Figure 2.4(c) The hydrogen atoms are close enough so that
appreciable overlap of the two 1s orbitals occurs. The
concentration of electron density in the region between the
two protons is more readily apparent.
two Valence Bond Model of H2 Figure 2.4(d) A molecule of H2. The two hydrogen 1s
orbitals have been replaced by a new orbital that
encompasses both hydrogens and contains both electrons.
