What is the role of wave interference in determining whether a molecular orbital is bonding or antibonding?
Organic Chem Chap 1 Notes (continued…) Week 8/299/2 1. How to draw Lewis Structures a. Determine the total number of valence electrons supplied by all atoms in the structure. i. for a negative ion, increase the total # by the charge ii. for a positive ion, decrease the total # by the charge b. Write a skeleton of the compound and give all atoms an octet of electrons (an exception is H which gets two). c. Double bonds decrease the total # of electrons in the structure by 2. Triple bonds decrease the total # of electrons in the structure by 4. d. Calculate the formal charge of your dot structure. e. In a neutral molecule, the sum o
