Write the Lewis symbols for each of the following ions:
Write Lewis structures for the following:
- Draw a curve that describes the energy of a system with H and Cl atoms at varying distances. Then, find the minimum energy of this curve two ways.
- Use the bond energy found in the Table here to calculate the energy for one single HCl bond (Hint: How many bonds are in a mole?)
Use valence bond theory to explain the bonding in F2, HF, and ClBr. Sketch the overlap of the atomic orbitals involved in the bonds.
How many σ and π bonds are present in the molecule HCN?
What is the difference between covalent bond and ionic bond wave functions?
