Reading: CHP 5 Molecular Orbitals - Homonuclear diatomics: 5.2

PreAssignment:

Learning Outcomes:

This section continues on the discussion of MOs for homonuclear molecules. It expands the discussion by introducing mixing of orbitals thus allowing for representation of more diatomics.

Group Activity - We will discussing figures 5.5 - 5.8 in detail. Be prepared to discuss the figures in groups.
