If you have two hydrogen atoms. And they are the isotope form "Protium" (1 neutron removed) and they are also cationized +1 (1 electron removed) then you have (in a sense) a single proton (two of them actually).
1) Are these protons just subatomic particles now (i.e. protons)? Or are they still "Atoms" consisting of only a proton?
2) If you were to bond them, would you have a weird cationized isotope form of H2 or would you have a weird cationized isotope form of He
I would imagine the bond has the 2 protons close to each other, but they are not close enough to have a "strong nuclear force" and thefore are just bonded, not fused, and are technically H2 and only become He when they get close enough to be classified as a Nucleus?
