Unformatted text preview: ur purposes.) Using experimental valence orbital energies (see lecture notes 2), calculate CE for the the first-row elements (H, Li to F) and plot against Pauling EN values (χp). How does the Allen definition fare against the traditional Pauling values? (You may use a computer to plot the data.) -5 CEs (eV): H, –13.6; Li, –5.5; Be, –9.3; B, –12.1; C, –15.4; N, –18.9; O, –21.4; F, –24.8. The best way to analyze this data is to plot one parameter against the other; this reveals a highly linear relationship (the linear regression fit is the red line in the plot). Given the very Configuration Energy 1. - 10 - 15 - 20 different approaches used to define the two parameters (molecular thermochemistry vs. atomic orbital energies), the strength of the correlation suggests t...
