Valence orbital R(max): periodicity

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


AU and pm


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.
