molecular orbital diagram question

Postby samanthalee14adis1G » Fri Dec 02, 2016 11:28 pm

i know that when z>= 8 we put the pz under px and py and that when z<8 we but the pz above px and py
but when we have something like CO, C has z=6 and O has z=8 why do we use the diagram we would use for z<8 even though O=8?

For any heterogenous species, you use z < 8, I believe.
