(4 pts) What is the correct ordering of energies of π -MOs in benzene, shown below? A B C D E F a) D < B = E < C = F < A b) D < B < C = E < F < A c) D < B = C < E = F < A d) D < B = C < A < E = F e) D < E = F < B = C < A 4. (4 pts) The alkyl-alkyl eclipsing interaction in pentane introduces 11 kJ/mol of strain, and the hydrogen-alkyl eclipsing interaction contributes 6 kJ/mol of strain. What is the height of the largest rotational barrier in pentane (counting from the zero-strain reference point)?
