Bonding in Some Diatomic Molecules (Applications of Molecular Orbital Theory)

Bonding in Some Diatomic Molecules: Hydrogen Molecule (H2): The electronic configuration of H is 1s1. Thus the formation of the H2 molecule involves the linear combination of 1s orbital of one H-atom with 1s-orbital of another H-atom forming two molecular orbitals. The molecular orbital formed by the addition overlap is known as bonding molecular orbital and …
