Abstract The total intensity of fast electrons scattered by hydrogen molecule ions was calculated by using the exact molecular wave functions as well as two approximate wave functions. The effect of binding on the intensity was illustrated by comparing the calculations with the intensity given by an independent atom model. The results of the calculations indicate that to the first Born approximation the electron scattering is not very sensitive to the shape of the charge density near the nuclei. It is also shown that the binding energy may provide a reasonable criterion for predicting how well a given wave function will describe the scattered electron intensity. (auth)
