Thus, both the ionic bond and the covalent bond involve a magnetically bound (anti-parallel spin-aligned) electron pair that is attracted to two positively charged atomic nuclei by Coulomb forces.
Therefore, the choice for the energy fluctuation time during a spontaneous symmetry breaking phase transition of electron pairs is taken to be the Planck time [T.
Some theorists have proposed that magnetic interactions between the electrons and copper atoms play a key role in forging electron pairs.
One approach is to check whether the energy needed to break up an electron pair depends on its direction of travel.
The year 2016 then, marks the 100th anniversary of Lewis's concept of the covalent bond model and electron pairs.
Detected electron pairs can bump into each other or into impurities in the solid, which dissipates energy and prevents the resistance-free flow seen in the superconducting state.
