    • Abstract

       

      The wave function of the promoted (4p) state of boron of configuration (1s2; 2s1; 2p2) obtained as a result of promotion of one electron from 2s to 2p orbital in the ground state, is calculated. These results indicate that this promotion leads to a ‘contraction’ of both 2s and 2p orbitals.
