Problem 71E

Molecular Orbitals and Period 2 Diatomic Molecules (Sections)

(a) What is the difference between hybrid orbitals and molecular orbitals? (b) How many electrons can be placed into each MO of a molecule? (c) Can antibonding molecular orbitals have electrons in them?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

CEM 141 Lecture 29: VSEPR Dr. Jian Hu November 11 , 2016 Extracting Information from Lewis Structures  Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory (VSEPR): helps to determine molecular shape from the Lewis Structure  It makes the assumption that centers of electron density repel one another  Single bonds, double bonds, triple bonds, and lone pairs of electrons all count as one center of electron density each  The atom will naturally take up an arrangement of minimum energy Electron Center Geometry  2 centers of electron density have sp hybridization, and are considered to be linear; bond angle is 180 degrees (ex: CO ) 2 2 
