Monatomic hydrogen volume and diatomic hydrogen volume?

    What is it exactly that causes the diatomic hydrogen to have such a greater volume than monatomic hydrogen?

    I don't know where you found such a statement, nor where you find monatomic hydrogen - are you taking about deep space? - but if there were such a thing in bulk matter the opposite of what you say would be true.
