Unformatted text preview: Answers to Problem 5, 2009 2p – 2p = A (a ) (b ) 2p ± 2p ± ± B B 2p + 2p = B ± A A We interact B ± B and A ± A For two reasons we need not examine B ± A. 1. all such interactions are "net zero" 2. at this level of "theory" we need only interact the orbitals closest in energy (B ± B, A ± A) ± 2=B–B B B ± 1=B+B A A order in energy by counting new nodes: 4=A+A 3 three new nodes 2 two new nodes 4 one new node 1 no new nodes 3=A–A ...
