Question 4.61

Postby Sydney Wu 2M » Tue Nov 01, 2016 8:13 am

When you have a heteronuclear diatomic molecule with one Z > 8 and the other Z < 8, how do you know when the pi bonding orbital comes before the sigma bonding orbital, and vice versa? i.e. CO

I discussed this in detail in Monday's class and went through CO as an example.

For heteronuclear diatomic molecules with one Z > 8 and the other Z < 8 use the diagram for Z < 8.
