    Chapter 9:  Bonding -  Orbitals 1. Valence Bond Theory a. Hybrid Orbitals b.   σ  and  π  bonds c. cis/trans isomerism d. Uses for VBT (VBT is accurate for predicting molecular shapes, bond  angles, and bond rotation) 2. Molecular Orbital Theory a. Predicting shapes and relative energies of MO’s from AO’s b. Using MO theory to predict bond order, para/diamagnetism, electron  configurations, relative stability of diatomic molecules c. Uses for MO theory (MO theory is the most accurate way to predict  electronic properties like electron energies and the properties listed in 2b  above) 3. Combining MO theory and VBT for molecules with resonance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
