Unformatted text preview: orbitals. For the C2 molecule, please include contributions from all three sets of atomic orbitals present on the carbon atom. In the C22- case, you may simply draw the molecular orbitals that arise from the 2p orbitals on both carbon atoms. b. What is the bond order for both diatomic molecules? c. What are the term symbols for the ground state of C2 and C22- ? d. Which do you perceive to be the more stable molecule of the two? 3. Sketch the molecular orbital diag...
