The quantitative
G.N.Lewis Model

  Ernst Schumacher Univ. of Bern

  This site presents a quantitative
  Lewis model
of molecular structure,
  using G.E. Kimball's free spherical
  electron clouds

  Note: Drawings of "electron clouds" or
  "orbitals" on a molecular skeleton in
  any approximation represent helpful
  visualizations, not the "truth"!

Orbital surfaces are the set of points at a selected amplitude of the spatial wavefunction, which is unlimited. Cores are arbitrarily drawn.

Kimballs free clouds are simple computa-tional tools, explained in these pages. Their surface is the set of points at the expected radius of an unlimited s-type density distribution for every sphere (Tutorials). [He] cores are computed, too.
