How are molecular orbital formed? They are formed by combining atomic orbitals on an atom in the molecule
Where are electrons in bonding molecular orbitals located? Electrons are located in the region directly between the two nuclei
what is a sigma orbital? sigma orbital is a bonding molecular orbital with cylindrical symmetry about an internuclear axis
what is bond order? bond order indicates the strength of the bond. The greater the bond order, the stronger the bond
why is molecular orbital theory more powerful than valence bond theory? because the orbital theory reflects the geometry of the molecules to which they are applied
Does the molecular orbital theory require resonance to predict bond length and energy? molecular orbital theory does not need resonance structures to predict bond length and energy
How does the molecular orbital theory treat molecular bonds? The molecular theory treats molecular bonds as a sharing of electrons between nuclei
How does the valence bonding theory treat electrons? the valence theory treats electrons as localized balloons of electron density
How does the molecular orbital theory treat electrons? the molecular orbital theory treats electrons as delocalized meaning that they are spread out over the entire molecule
what is stigma star also called? antibonding
In molecular orbital theory electrons enter the ______ orbital available lowest orbital available
what is the maximum number of electrons in an orbital?, two
In molecular orbital theory, of the two molecular orbital one is ________ orbital and the other is _______ orbital bonding orbital and the other is antibonding orbital
