    Bonding and antibonding orbitals in H2.

    I know that there is one bonding orbital and one antibonding orbital in H2, molecular hydrogen. My question is, the two electrons occupy the bonding orbital, but is there anything in the antibonding orbital? I know that the quantum number of orbitals in molecular hydrogen must equal the number...

    Question Regarding Hydrogen Bonding

    So, a classmate stated that if a salt is dissolved in water, with a chemical change occurring but not a chemical reaction, energy is released when the hydrogen bonds break. It was clarified that this does not mean the breaking of bonds is exothermic, but that if the energy released from the...

    Problems with chemical bonding

    I would be grateful if you help me clear my ideas for some of the basic concepts about chemical bonding: First: How do you determine the length of a molecular bond Question: Which of these bonds is less longer: O=O C=0 C-C or c(with three lines)C Second: Bonding stability Question: Which of...

    Chemical Bonding Between Zirconium Oxide and Polyvinyl Alcohol

    I just wish to see if my understanding of the basic chemistry is correct. The reactants include zirconium oxide (ZrO2) and polyvinyl alcohol (C2H4O) with distilled water as the solvent. Is it correct to state that polyvinyl alcohol serves as a good binder to zirconium oxide because the...

    bonding of C2H6

    How many of the electrons in a molecule of ethane, c2h6, are not involved in bonding. i personally think its 0 because all its electrons are already used up to bond to each other but the answer is 4. why?
