Question

3. Consider the diatomic molecule NF.

(a) Draw the shape of the 2 pz orbital on N. How many

nodes does this orbital have? Show the nodes in your diagram.

(b) Construct a molecular orbital energy diagram for NF. For this drawing consider both the s and p valence orbitals on each atom, but do not include orbital mixing. Show how the electrons are placed in the MO's.

(c) How would orbital mixing alter the MO energy diagram you just constructed? Show a new MO energy diagram.
