If we assume that the proton (much heavier by about a factor of 2000) is at rest while the electron is mobile, we can write approximate hamiltonian for the energy levels of the electron H = 2 2 m e d 2 dx 2 + d 2 dy 2 + d 2 dx 2 e 2 4 πε 0 r = 2 2 m e 2 e 2 4 0 r 2 = 1 r 2 r r 2 r + 1 r 2 1 sin θ ( ) sin ( ) + 1 sin 2 ( ) 2 φ 2 multiplying H ψ r , , ( ) = E r , , ( ) by 2 m e r 2 we have 2 r r 2 r r , , ( ) 2 1 sin ( ) sin ( ) + 1 sin 2 ( ) 2 2 r , , ( ) 2 m e r 2 e 2 4 0 r + E r , , ( ) = 0 Note that only the middle term depends on θ and ϕ sugges±ng separa±on of variables r , , ( )= R r ( ) ?

Mathema0cal detour II The fnal equa0on derived is a sum oF two terms one depends only on x 1 and only on x 2 and their sum is equal a constant. This can be right only iF each term is a constant 2 2 m 1 φ '' x 1 ( ) x 1 ( ) 2 2 m 2 χ '' x 2 ( ) x 2 ( ) = E ⇒ − 2 2 m 1 '' x 1 ( ) x 1 ( ) = E 1 2 2 m 2 '' x 2 ( ) x 2 ( ) = E 2 We thereFore have two independent one dimensional par0cle in a box problem to solve 2 2 m 1 '' x 1 ( ) = E 1 x 1 ( ) 1 2 2 m 2 '' x 2 ( ) = E 2 x 2 ( ) & E 1 + E 2 = E
