  • Using Computational Chemistry to Determine the Binding Energy within an Atom

    By Rebecca Bowers, Adrian Coello Faculty Mentor: Leanna Giancarlo Abstract The binding energy of an atom felt by an electron from the protons within the nucleus can be accurately calculated using computational software. Improvements to computing capabilities allow for the precise approximation of values, such as binding energy, without having to do any wet lab…
