Unformatted text preview: 7. Figure 1 shows a molecule of tetrahedral symmetry (point group T d ) inside a tetrahedron. Please use the letters in the atoms (vertices) to describe all mirror planes of symmetry d Figure 1 8. Determine the point group for all possible conformations of dinitrogen tetrafluoride, F 2 NNF 2 . Is F 2 NNF 2 a chiral molecule? Why or why not? 9. When determining the effective nuclear charge for a 1s electron Slaters rules dictate that the other 1s electron must have a value of 0.30 not 0.35. Why? What element are we talking about? BONUS: How many different point groups are there for s, p, d and f orbitals?...
