Electron Configuration

Postby Alondra Loera 1A » Fri Dec 04, 2015 12:56 am

Can somebody explain how to get the electron configuration of molecular orbitals and how this relates to typical electron configuration?

You need to memorize the order of MO's. There are two possibilities, one when all atoms are lighter than oxygen and one when not all atoms are lighter than oxygen. Then you just count the electrons and fill up the diagram, two electrons in each MO.
