tested the solutions used in the field test, and determined that there were no molecules present whose ELECTRON geometry were trigonal planar. So, does the defense have a case based on this evidence? What does this evidence prove? ( Remember : The question asks about electron geometry, not molecular geometry.)
Feedback: This involves Lewis Strucures from Chapter 10 Question 12 of 12 5.0/ 5.0 Points (a) Discuss the difference in the shapes of s and p orbitals. (b) How many electrons does each orbital hold? (c) Which of these orbitals do electrons occupy first? (d) Which of these orbitals has the electrons with the highest energy, assuming both orbitals are in the same energy level? Be sure to base your answer on what we discussed in THIS class and use the terminology from the materials in THIS course. Your answer must be sufficiently detailed to receive credit, and properly labeled according to the letters above. The s orbital has a sphere shape. Each orbital can hold no more than two electrons. Electrons occupy the 1s orbital first. It fills as follows, 1s, 2s, 2p,2p,2p,3s, 3p,3p,3p,4s, 3d,3d,3d,3d,3d, 4p,4p,4p,5s,4d,4d,4d,4d,4d. The p orbital has a dumbbell shape. P orbitals have l = 1, with three possible values for m (-1, 0, +1). The wave function is complex when m = 1 or m = -1. Feedback: Electron orbitals are in Chapter 9
