Molecular orbitals can help explain periodic trends in electronegativity, ionization energy, and electron affinity in the same way as atomic orbitals and electron configuration. Incomplete molecular orbital = easier to pull off an electron while molecular orbital with two electrons is harder.
What does it mean to have overlapping atomic orbitals? What is meant by the greater splitting energy that results in more overlapping?
