(a) Sketch the molecular orbitals of the H2- ion and draw its energy-level diagram.
(b) Write the electron configuration of the ion in terms of its MOs.
(c) Calculate the bond order in H2- (d)Suppose that the ion is excited by light, so that an electron moves from a lower-energy to a higher-energy molecular orbital.
Would you expect the excited-state H2- ion to be stable? Explain.
Week 5 Chapter 6: Capturing and Using Energy Monday, September 12, 2016 7:28 PM 6.1 An overview of Metabolism When considering a cell's use of energy, it is helpful to consider the cell's sources of carbon. Carbon-based compounds are stable forms of energy storage. There are four ways in which organisms acquire the energy and materials needed to grow, function, and reproduce....
