Using a non-local exchange kernel X(r, r) defined earlier by March and Santamaria, Hartree-Fock theory is shown to yield an exact relation for the kinetic energy density t(r). This involves X(r, r) and its low-order gradients with respect to r. Explicit limiting results then emerge for t at large r. A two-level example applicable to either the Be atom or the diatomic heteronuclear molecule LiH confirms the general relation between t(r) and X(r, r) presented here.
