Solution: The covalent bond in H2. (a) The attractions and repulsions among electrons and nuclei in the hydrogen molecule. (b) Electron distribution in the H2 molecule.What would happen to the magnitudes of

Problem

Diagram shows that (a) electrons repel each other, and nuclei repel each other, but nuclei and electrons attract each other; and (b) that concentration of electron density clouds between two nuclei is a covalent bond.
The covalent bond in H2. (a) The attractions and repulsions among electrons and nuclei in the hydrogen molecule. (b) Electron distribution in the H2 molecule.

What would happen to the magnitudes of the attractions and repulsions represented in (a) if the nuclei were farther apart?
