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....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
