Ozone For O 3 , VSEPR predicts a trigonal planar electron-group geometry Hybridization is sp 2 on central (and terminal) O atoms. Each O atom uses a sp 2 + p orbital set. 18 valence electrons total, 14 in sp 2 orbitals (5 lone pairs + 2 bond pairs) Three unhybridized p orbitals remain, 1 on each O atom and 4 electrons are also unassigned

Bonding in Metals and Metalloids Metallic Properties: conduct heat and electricity, malleable, medium – high melting points. “Sea of Electrons” Model metals are positive ions with all of their core e - valence electrons are free to move(conduction) can be distorted without breaking strong Coulombic attractions(malleable)

Band Theory – MO Picture of Solids the N valence orbitals from N atoms combine to form a series of N molecular orbitals. for large N, the energies of these MO's are very close each valence orbital will generate a band with a different energy range filled empty
