Unformatted text preview: O 2 predicts diamagnetic ITS ACTUALLY PARAMAGNETIC Things to Know Overlap of two atomic orbitals on different atoms leads to two shared molecular orbitals 1. Bonding >Constructive interference >More electron density between nuclei >Lower in energy = ELECTRONS WILL GO IN THIS FIRST 2. Antibonding >Destructive interference >More electron density outside of nuclei >Higher in energy >REPULSION PULLS NUCLEI APART Parallel P orbitals overlap and bond together Orbital ordering for O, F, Ne O 2 2s 2 2p 4 Orbital ordering for B, C, N Sigma, sigma star, pi, sigma, pi star, sigma star...
