Unformatted text preview: map thats for lack of a better word, in flux. In other words, the charges arent oriented in just the area of the double bond. Rather when I calculated and developed the map the charges are distributed on the two outside atoms and the electrostatic potential is equally distributed. The bond lengths in the in the unconstrained ozone are lower thus yielding a lower energy, as energy tends to decrease with smaller bond length....
