Abstract:By the one-atom theory the electronic structure of bcc-V has been determined to be [Ar]
(3dn)1.7998(3dc)2.6578(4Sc)0.1711(4sf)0.3713. According to this electronic structure of bcc-V, its potential curve, cohesive energy, lattice parameter, elasticity and linear thermal expansion coefficient were calculated. The electronic structures of the primary state crystals of fcc-V, hcp-V and the primary state liquid—V have also been studied.
Key words: vanadium; electronic structure; physical properties
