Unformatted text preview: r denotes electronic coordinates) is a Gaussian centered at R p = ( α R A + β R B )/( α + β ). 2. Hybrid orbitals (30 pts) Show that the following sp 3 hybridized orbitals are normalized and orthogonal. Give an example of a molecule whose orbitals may be described by these hybrids. 3. Hueckel approximation (30 pts) Using the Hueckel approximation, show that the π molecular orbital corresponding of the energy E = α – β for the ethene molecule is Φπ = (2p zA – 2p zB )/sqrt(2). A and B denote Carbon atoms and 2p z denotes an orbital centered at the C atom. Explain all approximations involved in the so called Hueckel theory that you are using. Find the wavefunction in the case when the overlap S is different from zero....
