Week 9 Handout Covel Tutorial Chem 20A 1. Draw the molecular orbital diagram for CO. What is the bond order and is this molecule stable? What is its magnetic properties? Hybridization 1. Describe the hybrid orbitals that form in a C 2 H 4 molecule. Then draw the expected geometry of the molecule. 2. Show the hybrid orbitals that form in a C 2 H 2 molecule. Sketch the expected hybridized molecule.

Unformatted text preview: If the lone pair is on the central atom, include it when finding its steric number (SN). What would you expect the hybrid orbitals to look like for a central atom with a lone pair? (i.e. how many electrons in each hybrid orbital) Show the hybrid orbitals formed for an NH 3 . 4. Write out the wave function of the bond(s) in a O 2, Li 2 , and an H 2 O molecule....
