Bonding Of Diatomic Molecules D O2 F2 NE2

In chemistry, a bond is a lasting attraction between atoms that enables the formation of chemical compounds. The bond may result from the electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged atoms, ionic bonding between atoms with positive and negative charges, or the sharing of electrons as in covalent bonding. The strength of chemical bonds varies considerably; the most covalent are those of single and double carbon-carbon bonds, while the most ionic are those of oxygen (O–O, O–H, O–S and O–Cl) and the most metallic are the bonds of sodium (Na–Na).

So when we look at the m o diagrams for oh, to have two and me onto, we actually see a slight difference on DSO. When we look at the M O diagrams for these diatonic molecules, we actually see a change in the Sigma as well as the past. And so for these die atomic molecules, we actually see that the pie orbital's are higher and energy in the stigma, and that's mainly because these types of items won't do as much overall mixing. And so this would be the M O diagram that you would generally use from oxygen onwards. And so, if we actually do this for oxygen, want to recall that the electron configuration is want us to to us to and to p four? And so we have two electrons in the S and we have four MP, and so we can make sure that we have the same number of electrons on both sides. And now we can fill in the molecular or rolls using our electrons in the atomic morals. And so we have 1234 and in this case we have four on each side and so we should expect eight. So we have one, too. 345678 And so this would be the M O diagram for auction, and we can draw a similar diagram for the half to. And the only difference is that the attitude will have two more electrons in the M O diagram. And so the electron configuration of a single one. He's tp five, and let's just make sure we label these. This is where I have to. And so we have to here, and we have five electrons and a tape, and so we can now make sure that we draw the bow dagger correctly. So we need to make sure that we have 10 electrons for the molecular orbital's that we create for people and for for the to us. So we have 1234 and we have one, too. 34 56 89 10. And say this in media Emma diagram for the uptick. And again we can draw a similar diagram for the Neon, too. And so this would have a nice transporation of want us to thio us to two p six. Yeah, this would be me on, and we're looking at the onto. And so all of these atomic or roles have electrons in them, and so we should expect so how the Ebola diagram felt completely and so we can fill these up. And so this would be the memo diagram for the
