Multiple Bonds (Section)
(a) If the valence atomic orbitals of an atom are sp hybridized, how many unhybridized porbitals remain in the valence shell? How many π bonds can the atom form?
(b) Imagine that you could hold two atoms that are bonded together, twist them, and not change the bond length. Would it be easier to twist (rotate) around a single σ bond or around a double (σ plus π) bond, or would they be the same?
Week 2: 8/309/5 Biology Lecture 2 cont: Chemistry Atoms ● Electrons are on different shells ● Within each shell, electrons travel in different orbitals ● Last shell=Valence shell ● First shell always holds 2 electrons, next can hold 8 Ionic Bonds ● Transfers electrons from one atom...
