Problem 16, Chemistry 301X- 2006 In Problem 15, you did parts a and b. CHECK WITH A TA TO BE SURE YOU RE RIGHT (a) Construct the two MOs for a C—H bond from a carbon sp 3 and hydrogen 1 s orbital (b) Make careful drawings of these orbitals. NOW: (c) Draw staggered and eclipsed ethane. You may use your stick drawings from Problem 15. (d) What factor DE stabilizes the eclipsed form of ethane as compared to the staggered
