What happens right in front of our eyes, yet it's so small that we don't get to see its beauty?
ATOMIC VIBRATIONS AND ROTATIONS HAPPEN! Here, I examine the energy of hydrochloric acid, with the chemical formula HCl. Hydrogen has one electron and one proton, while the chlorine atom has 17 protons and 17 electrons. We are convinced that the 36 particles hold themselves together to form HCl. The Born-Oppenheimer approximation is used to reduce the mathematical rigor to a one-dimensional system.
