What is molecular orbital theory and how to explain it

In molecular orbital theory, atomic orbitals combine to form molecular orbitals. Here, we will discuss the two types of MO formed due to LCAO method. What is molecular orbital theory Rules for filling electronic configuration of MO The rule states that electrons are filled in order of increasing energy. 2. Pauli’s Exclusion Principle A MO […]

What is Hybridisation and how to find shape of molecule (2)

Hybridisation determines the shape of molecule. The types of hybridisation depends upon the number and types of orbitals mixed together. Here, we will discuss the shape of molecules having bond pairs and lone pairs. What is Hybridisation Covalent bond is formed by the overlap of half filled orbitals. (hybridised or unhybridised) Shape of NH3 molecule […]

What is Hybridisation and how to find shape of molecule

Hybridisation determines the shape of molecule. The types of hybridisation depends upon the number and types of orbitals mixed together. What is Hybridisation Covalent bond is formed by the overlap of half filled orbitals. (hybridised or unhybridised) Shape of BeF2 molecule on the basis of hybridisation Shape of BF3 molecule on the basis of hybridised […]

What is Hybridisation and how to apply VBT

Hybridisation is the process of intermixing atomic orbitals of almost similar energies to form new orbitals of equal energy and identical shape. Here, we will discuss about the valence bond theory to understand the concept of hybridisation. What is Hybridisation It is the process of intermixing atomic orbitals of almost similar energies to form new […]

What is dipole moment and how to apply it

Dipole moment is the product of magnitude of charge and the distance between them. Here, we will study about the applications of dipole moment. What is dipole moment Comparison of dipole moments of NH3 and NF3 Applications of D.M. Check out the post on covalent bonding here For more updates join me on  You Tube […]
