Problem 23E

How is the number of molecular orbitals approximated by a linear combination of atomic orbitals related to the number of atomic orbitals used in the approximation?

Solution :Step 1 :Here, different manometers contain different amount of Mercury(Hg) and gas enclosed in themanometers have different pressure. We need to calculate the pressure of gas in eachmanometer. Given, Atmospheric pressure = 0.995 atm. pressure of the enclosed gas in each of the three cases =
