valence f-orbital R(max)



This gives calculated values of Rmax, the radius at which the magnitude of wave function is greatest, for the valence f orbitals.

Values given in the original literature are in atomic units (= 52.92 pm). Values given here in pm here are obtained by multiplying the original value 52.92.
