He+ ion

Postby Anisha Chandra 1K » Sun Oct 27, 2019 10:08 am

I saw a question in textbook that asked how a 1s orbital in the He+ ion would different from the same orbital in H. Would it have something to do with size and effective nuclear charge?

I think this is because He+ has a stronger nuclear attraction because it has a more positive nucleus making the orbital tighter and closer in He+ than in H.

Yeah, the size of the atoms is different because of the periodic trends so the orbital location would be different even tho the shape is the same because its in the 1s orbital.
