Unformatted text preview: σ b 2s 2 ..... ) and its bond order i. When n > 2, only one of the two diagrams above applies for appropriate homonuclear diatomics. Which one applies, and provide a rationalization. j. In the molecule below, indicate which carbons are sp 3-hybridized with the letter a , the sp 2 carbons with the letter b , and the sp-hybridized carbons with the letter c . NH 2 k. Consider the acetone molecule shown below. 2 O C CH 3 H 3 C i. Sketch the linear combination of orbitals (if you choose hybrid orbitals, make sure they look like hybrids; linear combination means φ a ± φ b , for example) that constitutes the C-O sigma bond in acetone. ii. Sketch the linear combination of orbitals that constitutes the C-O pi bond in acetone....
