Unformatted text preview: y B + 2p y B 2p y 2p x C + 2p x C 2p x three bonding three antibonding one nonbonding antibonding D does not interact either (d,e) just count nodes. A + 2s has none, B + 2p x and C + 2p y have one each and will be at the same energy. The nonbonding orbital must lie above B +2p x and C + 2p y . There are eight electrons (four from the four hydrogens and four from carbon) and they will go in to the orbitals as shown. A + 2s B + 2p y C + 2p x E nonbonding...
