Molecular orbitals in Fluorine

fluorine orbitals

Background:

Use the buttons to display the 1s and 2p atomic orbitals that make up the molecular orbitals.


There are four molecular orbitals derived from the 1s and 2s orbitals.

The p orbitals combine to produce a sigma and two perpendicular pi bonds. Three bonding orbitals...

... and three antibonding orbitals.
