A model of compressed molecular hydrogen is studied in some detail. The model, which had been applied previously to several two and three particle systems, considers the effects of enclosing a single molecule in a rigid spheroidal container, the size of which is related to the pressure of the gas. The resulting Schrodinger wave equation was solved by the variational method. The lack of experimental data precludes any firm conclusion as to the model's adequacy, but it is clear that a model of considerably greater complexity is needed for an adequate treatment.
