Unformatted text preview: Know the types of hybridization and some of the molecules in which these occur: sp 3 , sp 2 , sp, dsp 3 , d 2 sp 3 . That is, describe the structure of a molecule in terms of hybrid orbitals and sigma and pi bonds. Describe how atomic orbitals combine to form molecular orbitals. Describe the molecular orbitals for homonuclear diatomic molecules. Know how to calculate bond order using a molecular orbital energy-level diagram. Distinguish between diamagnetism and paramagnetism using the molecular orbital model. With respect to electron transitions that give rise to a UV or visible absorption spectrum: understand the difference between e- transitions in atomic orbitals (atomic spectroscopy) and e- transitions in molecular orbitals (molecular spectroscopy, HOMO LUMO)....
