Atomic, Molecular, Hybrid Orbitals: Similarities

CHEM-MKRONU

Consider atomic, molecular and hybridized orbitals and determine which of the following statements are true.

Select ALL that apply.

A

When occupied, atomic, molecular and hybridized orbitals can each hold a maximum of two electrons.

B

Atomic and hybridized orbitals are localized on individual atoms while molecular orbitals are not.

C

Atomic, molecular and hybridized orbitals can each have bonding and antibonding forms.

D

Both atomic and hybridized orbitals can be used to construct molecular orbital diagrams.

E

Using hybridized, rather than atomic orbitals, to understand bonding in molecules is useful since they provide better agreement between observed and predicted bond angles.
