Li 2 Former 2s electrons of two Li atoms Energy Atomic orbitals Atomic orbitals Molecular orbital of Li 2 E = 0 The two electrons that formerly occupied 2s 1 atomic orbitals now spend a considerable amount of time in the space between the two nuclei. The two electrons ow occupy a molecular orbital. The two electrons in the molecular bond are shared by the two nuclei. Each e added to a solid adds an energy level and each electron occupies the lowest available energy level Metallic Bonding

There is a maximum of 2 electrons in each level. The energy values between Mo and MO* form the energy band of the crystal of Li. Electrons in the crystal of Li may possess any energy value between MO and MO*. At equilibrium, the electrons will
