Unformatted text preview: 6. Draw the MO diagram for VH. Assume the only valence orbitals in V are the 3d orbitals. (In other words, ignore the V 4s orbital). To get the correct answer, it is important to use the coordinate axes shown below. On the Pauling scale, H has electronegativity 2.1 while V has electronegativity 1.6. Is this molecule paramagnetic? What is its bond order? Solution: Below is the correct MO diagram for VH. VH is paramagnetic. Its bond order is 1....
