Consider atomic, molecular and hybridized orbitals and determine which of the following statements are true.
Select ALL that apply.
When occupied, atomic, molecular and hybridized orbitals can each hold a maximum of two electrons.
Atomic and hybridized orbitals are localized on individual atoms while molecular orbitals are not.
Atomic, molecular and hybridized orbitals can each have bonding and antibonding forms.
Both atomic and hybridized orbitals can be used to construct molecular orbital diagrams.
Using hybridized, rather than atomic orbitals, to understand bonding in molecules is useful since they provide better agreement between observed and predicted bond angles.
