Chemistry 3140: Advanced Inorganic Chemistry Practice Problems in Molecular Orbital Theory 1. Sketch a quick MO diagram from two atomic orbitals, labeling each MO as bonding, nonbonding or antibonding, each containing one electron … a. … when there is a good energy match. b. … when there is a marginal energy match, just barely in the 10 ev volt limit. Point out which of the two atoms is more electronegative. 2. Sketch a quick MO diagram from three atomic orbitals, labeling each MO as bonding,

Unformatted text preview: nonbonding or antibonding, each containing one electron a. when there is a good energy match and the three atomic orbitals are distinct. b. when one out of energy range from the other two. 3. What are the three ways to get a non-bonding orbital in an MO diagram? 4. Okay, heres the big one: construct the MO diagram of the nitrate ion. Compare the bond order and the number of lone pairs in the MO diagram with the Lewis Structure....
