Splitting Energy

What is splitting energy and how does it relate to atomic orbitals?

Splitting energy is the difference in energy between the bonding and antiboding states. It is represented by the distance between the two states in the MO diagrams.

Do we ever need to know how to calculate the exact difference in energy? Or just understand that one is lower/higher than the other?
