Molecular Orbitals and Period 2 Diatomic Molecules (Sections)
If we assume that the energy-level diagrams for homonuclear diatomic molecules shown in Figure can be applied to heteronuclear diatomic molecules and ions, predict the bond order and magnetic behavior of

Biology Lecture Notes Chapter 3 Carbon:The Backbone of Life Because of the actions of plants, carbon can enter the biosphere. With the use of solar energy, plants transform the atmospheric CO2 into molecules of life, where are thus eaten by planteating animals. Out of every element, carbon(C) can create large and complex molecules when they are bonded to other atoms like ● Hydrogen(H) ● Oxygen(O) ● Nitrogen(N) ● Sulfur(S) ● Although cells are between 75%95% water, the rest consists of carbonbased compounds. ● Carbon has the unparalleled ability to create large and diverse molecules.
