Drawing Heteronuclear MO diagrams

Postby Jonathan Shih 3H » Mon Nov 02, 2015 9:28 pm

When drawing these diagrams, is it enough just to make sure than the more electronegative atom's orbitals are drawn visibly lower than the other atom's orbitals? Or are there any other specifications, like if one has to be drawn a specific distnace lower?

There is not a specific distance, just make sure to draw them visibly lower.
