If one assumes that the potential energy between protons and neutrons has the shape of a simple potential hole, it is possible from the experimental value of the mass defect of the ${\mathrm{H}}^{2}$, to derive a connection between the mean width and the depth of this curve. This connection proves to be, to a large extent, independent of the finer details of the potential curve. By assuming a certain probable value, obtained from scattering experiments, for the width of the potential hole, it… Expand
