It shouldn't surprise us when, by chance, two atoms meet at a time when the temperature and pressure conditions are correct, and they make a hydrogen molecule.
As it is well known, the conventional representation of the Hydrogen molecule characterizes a four-body system due to the independence of the orbitals of the two valence electrons as requested by quantum chemistry, under which conditions no exact solution is possible.
From Avogadro's number, you could calculate the actual mass of a hydrogen molecule, since it would be 2 grams divided by six hundred billion trillion.
It turned out that quantum mechanics explained the properties and behavior of the hydrogen molecule neatly.
The detection of this unusual hydrogen molecule is "big news," notes Takeshi Oka (University of Chicago), who has studied it extensively.
Four years earlier, London had applied quantum mechanics to the electron-sharing between hydrogen atoms in the hydrogen molecule.
Helium atoms don't combine with other atoms, but two hydrogen atoms might combine to form a hydrogen molecule, and a hydrogen and an oxygen atom might combine to form a hydroxyl group.
A hydrogen molecule forms when two hydrogen atoms join.
We have measured the CO levels, that is to say carbon monoxide, which is one of the most common molecules in the universe, after the hydrogen molecule, H2.
They found that the water's oxygen atom bonds to the silicon atom of an organosilane molecule, leaving behind a hydrogen molecule composed of one hydrogen atom from water and another from the organosilane.
In a feat of precision chemistry, scientists have locked a single hydrogen molecule inside a soccer ball-shaped carbon molecule known as a buckyball, and they have used the technique to make large quantities of the tiny containers.
A hydrogen molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms bound together, with two protons sharing two electrons.
Astrobiologists hypothesize that a process called serpenitinization creates these hydrogen molecules, a result of the chemical reaction between the moon's rocky core and its hot ocean water.
She read up on how hydrogen water contains hydrogen molecules that act as powerful antioxidants to neutralize free radicals.
The researchers turned to a bacterial catalyst for inspiration, developing an inexpensive nickel-based catalyst that produces 45 million hydrogen molecules per second.
