Deciding to use less than 8 or more than 8 MO Diagram

Postby Arielle Kunitz 3A » Sat Dec 05, 2015 10:53 pm

If we are asked to draw a MO diagram for something like NO or CO (where one atom is less than 8 and one is more than 8), do you draw the diagram for less than 8 (with the pi orbitals below the sigma orbitals) or the way for more than 8?
Thanks so much!

Use the less than 8 one.
