I was wondering how they looked, because I was searching through the web to understand how to draw them but nothing useful came up. Do we need to know how to draw them for the quiz? And if so, how would you draw them if they have the same n value, such as CF, or when they have different n values, like HF?
You can just draw a lewis structure if you wanted. But this is usually referring to drawing out the molecular orbitals and filling in the valence electrons in each level of sigma and pi bonds. For heteronuclear ones just know that the more electronegative component is written lower.
I would imagine we need to know how to draw heteronuclear molecular orbitals for the quiz, but we have to know how to draw it for the final anyways. Basically use the same outline for MO as homonuclear molecular orbitals with Z<8, except the more electronegative element has a lower energy level.
