Unformatted text preview: outer shell electron, they have a mutual electrostaVc agracVon on the order of: e2 ! 4"!0 r How close do they need to be to counteract the 1.3 eV required to bind? 1.1 nm apart So…why don’t they crash into one another? •  Coulomb agracVon is stronger as ions get closer, why don’t they crash into one another? •  This would merge the nuclei into Z=28 •  Pauli exclusion principle kicks in!
