Energy ψ*MO = caϕ1sA  ­ cbϕ1sB ϕ1sA ϕ1sB ψMO = caϕ1sA + cbϕ1sB Deriving MO Diagrams: H2 Step 1: Draw the atomic orbitals of the isolated atoms. Omen, one AO is shown on the far lem and the other on the far right Energy Since ϕ1sA and ϕ1sB for hydrogen have the same energy, they are drawn at the same energy on the ver?cal axis. ϕ1sA ϕ1sB Deriving MO Diagrams: H2 Step 2: Draw the molecular orbitals. A bonding molecular orbital is formed from in ­phase combina0on of atomic orbitals. Energy Since the bonding MO has a lower energy than the atomic orbitals, it is drawn at a lower posi0on than the AOs on the energy axis. ϕ1sA ϕ1sB ψMO = ϕ1sA + ϕ1sB Deriving MO Diagrams: H2 Step 2: Draw the molecular orbitals. An an0bonding molecular orbital is formed from out ­of ­phas...
