Found a mistake in REU personal statement

  1. Feb 25, 2015 #1

    On all my REU applications besides two or three, I was asked to describe my previous research. I did so, but I realized I referred to the hydrogen atom as the hydrogen molecule. I showed in the case of H2+ that we develop the standard potential energy curve for the hydrogen atom. I accidentally wrote "hydrogen molecule" instead of "hydrogen atom". I assume that most people would not catch this mistake, but I am worried none the less. Is this typo worthy of an email to correct this error?
