Unformatted text preview: general, all MO Diagrams should always include the following: 1.  2.  Energy axis Horizontal lines represen0ng each atomic and molecular orbital at the appropriate rela0ve energy. Appropriate labels for each orbital (σg, σ*u, 1s, etc.) Electrons in the appropriate atomic and molecular orbitals. 3.  4.  For prac0ce, also do the following: 1.  Draw the atomic orbitals 2.  Draw the molecular orbitals 3.  Show the equa0ons for both bonding and an0bonding molecular orbitals 4.  Determine the bond order Prac0ce Problem By memory, draw the MO diagram that results from interac0on of p ­orbitals on one atom with p ­orbitals on another atom of the same element. 1.  2.  3.  4.  Label each atomic p ­orbital and draw the orbitals Label each molecular orbital and draw the orbitals Show the equa0on for the wave func0on of each molecular orbital in terms of the atomic orbitals that combine to generate it. Give appropriate symmetry labels to the molecular orbitals. MO T...
