Abstract: Some radial atomic properties of Be-atom in different excited states (1s2 2s 3s, 1s2 2s 4s, 1s2 2s 5s) (1s) have been obtained using two electron density function (r1,r2) in order to solve Hartree-Fock equations using slater type orbitals using partitioning technique within the individual electronic shells of different configuration of Be-atom in position space. Radial expectations values for one electron and two electrons , correlation coefficients , electron density at the nucleus , the nuclear magnetic shielding constant and The diamagnetic susceptibility have been calculated for these states of the same atom.

The Hartree–Fock–Roothaan (HFR) is one of the approximated methods for solving multi electron systems problem and it is powerful method for studying atomic and molecular systems not only for ground state but also for excited states. In this literature the radial part of one electron basis is expanded in terms of slater type orbital (STOs) defined by 
Here, > 0 is the orbital exponent. The quantity n occurring in eq. (1) is a positive principal quantum number of (STO). The determination of nonlinear parameters n and is very important for describing the atomic orbitals.
Most of the physically properties of a multi electron system can be calculated from the two-particle reduced density matrix , without reference to the wavefunction . It is contains all the necessary information to compute the energy and many properties of the atoms. It can be gained by integrating the spin and spatial coordinates of all electrons except two electrons () from the N-particle density matrix, so the two-electron reduced density matrix given by [2, 3].
Where = combined space and spin variable with represents the number of electron pairs which can be obtained by integrating the second-order reduced density matrix, so is normalized to the number of independent electron pairs within the systemas [4,5].
The density for the individual electronic shells is obtained by partitioning into its pair-wise components (i,j), where (i,j) labels the occupied normalized spin-orbitals in the HF description, the two electron density can be written as [6,7].
For Be -atom the number of electron pairs is
3. Expectation Values
Expectation value for one-electron is determined by the following expression .
Where m integer number ( . From leads to evaluate the correlation coefficient. The radial expectation value leads to the electron-nuclear potential energy and the nuclear magnetic shielding constant , from , we determined the atomic diamagnetic susceptibility , represented the distance between nucleus and the electron.
is the one-electron radial density function which represents the probability density function to finding an electron at a distance between r1 and r1 + dr1 from the coordinate origin ( i.e nucleus). The single-electron radial density D(r1) is obtained from integration over two–electron radial density function D(r1, r2) and defined as [9,10],
Where is the two-electron radial density function and represents the probability density that one electron is located at a radius r1 and the other electron at a radius r2 simultaneously. The two-electron radial density function is given by .
= ∫∫ (r1,r2) (9)
Where is the solid angle.
Two particle expectation value is defined as .
3.1. Nuclear Magnetic Shielding Constant
The nuclear magnetic shielding constant is determined from the formula .
Where is the distance from the nucleus to the electron in unit of atomic unit. and () fine structure constant = in the atomic units the inner electronic shells shield the external ones thus giving a smaller effective nuclear charge for the outer electrons. the predominant contribution of the S atomic orbitals, and the decreasing relative contribution of the external orbitals as compared to the inner one[14,15].
3.2. The Diamagnetic Susceptibility
The magnetization of a substance is proportional to the magnetizing (external) magnetic field B, thus . The proportionality factor is the magnetic susceptibility (). The vast majority of substances have negative magnetic susceptibility (are diamagnetic),or positive, which can be paramagnetic substances . The diamagnetic susceptibility is defined by relation:
3.3. Electron Density at the Nucleus
The electron density at the nucleus can be evaluated using the following form .
3.4. Correlation Coefficients
The correlation coefficients are similar to those used in classical statistics.for two electron shell they are defined as .
This quantity is restricted by the value -1≤ ≤ +1,(,means prefect positive (negative) correlation and means either non-correlated variables or for independent variables. For the atomic systems non-correlated variables means that the position vectors of any pairs of particles are orthogonal while independent variables means that the diagonal term of the two particle density matrix is the product of the one particle distribution functions. In these systems for inner shell (KαKβ )-shell for different excited states.
