The Department of Physics discussed a master’s thesis on calculating the energy of the secondary shells of the five- and six-electron systems
The thesis presented by MSc student Hashim Youssef Yacoub, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Qassem Shamkhi Jabbar, aimed to compare the atomic properties of the pentagonal and hexagonal systems of electrons with atomic numbers from 10 to 15 to provide a new database for future researchers.
The thesis included the use and programming of many equations using Mathcad 2014 to calculate the most important atomic properties such as the diagonal function, the interfacial density function of a single particle and two particles, potential energy, repulsion between two electrons, and the energy of attraction between the electron and the nucleus, in addition to calculating the Hartree-Fock energy and the total energy in atomic units for the five- and six-studied systems.
The study dealt with many atomic properties, the most important of which is the total energy of the system, which the results proved to increase with the increase in the atomic number.
The thesis recommended studying the intermediate shells of the same studied systems, as well as studying systems of other atoms.
