I don't understand where the equation (((Mole fraction of Px)Pi)^2)/(Mole Fraction of Px2)pi came from. After reading the section, I couldn't find this either. how did they derive it, or is it just common sense and I'm missing something?
If we have an atom like Carbon and we draw out its electron diagram, there would be 2 unpaired electrons, however we know that it can have 4 bonds. Thus, the orbitals are hybridized and it becomes sp3, showing that it can have 4 bonds.

What are the bonding and anti bonding orbitals for a given molecule? I understand that H2 would only have bonds in the S (circle) orbital, and F would have a P orbital used for bonding, but I'm not sure how those relate to Bonding and Anti bonding.
What would the correct lewis structure and resonance of the HOCO compound be? How do you know to place the electrons and bonds in specific places when the structure is a radical?

As for drawing (if you mean as in a lewis structure), you would just draw single, double, or triple bonds. To draw the actual bond, as the replier above stated, sigma bonds would be the head to head overlap of the s or p orbitals, whereas pi bonds would be the side to side overlap of p bonds.

In terms of a common trend, use the amount of bond areas. For example, all atoms with 2 zones of electron density would be SP.

Yes, it suggests that anything with mass has wavelength properties. As shown in his equation, mass, but further momentum, is related to wavelength, using planck's constant.

For the purposes of the class will we be learning similar equations for different atoms? I understand the Rydberg equation is based off empirical data for the H-atom, however did Dr. Lavelle mention anything about one for other atoms?

What happens to the excess energy that is supplied to get an electron to a certain energy level? If the jump from n1 to n2 takes 2 joules, but 2.5 is supplied, where will the extra .5 go?
