    We may readily show this by differentiation of the term in parentheses with respect to α and setting it equal to zero.Google Scholar

    In fact, the total s orbital stabilisation energy will change as the geometry changes since the β term in Eq. 1 contains the inverse of the energy separation between (in this case) s orbital and ligand a 1 (σ)-central atom orbitals. The energies of the latter will change on distortion but this effect will be smaller.Google Scholar
