Problem 85E

Consider the molecular orbitals of the P2 molecule. Assume that the MOs of diatomics from the third row of the periodic table are analogous to those from the second row. (a) Which valence atomic orbitals of P are used to construct the MOs of P2? (b) The figure that follows shows a sketch of one of the MOs for P2.What is the label for this MO? (c) For the P2 molecule, how many electrons occupy the MO in the figure? (d) Is P2 expected to be diamagnetic or paramagnetic? Explain.

Chem Study Guide Chapters 1 & 2 1.1 Chemistry- the study of matter and energy and the changes they undergo Matter- anything that has mass and occupies volume (space). 1.2 States of Matter solid- particles packed tightly together. Has a definite shape and a definite volume. liquid- particles are more spaced out. Has an indefinite shape and a definite volume. gas- particles are spaced far apart. Has an indefinite shape and an indefinite volume. Physical Properties- can be observed or measured with your senses without changing the identity of the matter. ex) melting point (mp), boiling point (bp), solubility, color and odor. Chemical Properties- the ability to undergo chemical change.
