If you ever wondered: “what does the wave function of N2 look like?” and “what happens when I stretch it?” check out the video below (I made it). It shows the wave function in a string representation where each tile correspond to a pair of occupations for the alpha and beta electrons. The magnitude of the wave function is proportional to the size and the color intensity. Red and blue indicate the phase (+,-).
