Molecular orbital theory

Postby Mya Majewski 1L » Tue Nov 03, 2015 3:16 pm

If you are given CO and you are told to do the molecular orbital theory for it, do you do the one where Z>8 or Z<8???

You would do the one where Z<8 because as long as one atom has Z<8 (the Carbon in this case), you must use that layout for that diagram.
