Sample JAVA program to calculate H2 molecule.

top page

If you copy and paste the program source code below into a text editor, you can easily compile and run this.
(This class file name is hmol, so save this text editor as "", and compile it.)
In this program, first we input the initial x-coordinates of electron-a (= ea in MM) and electron-b (= eb in MM ), the absolute value of H2 binding energy (in eV = experimental value = 4.746 eV ), distance between two nuclei ( in MM, experimental value 7414 MM ).

From the inputted values, after two electrons move a half orbit, this program outputs final coordinates of two electrons, de Broglie wavelength of one orbit, and average forces acting on each nucleus.
Here 1 SS = 1 × 10-23 second and 1 MM = 1 × 10-14 meter.
