I'm stuck with this. Will anyone help me please?
5B - 1s2 2s2 2p1 - 4 Atomic Orbitals - 3 valence e- x2
total - 8 Atomic Orbitals - 6 valence e-
As it is a cation, 8 Atomic Orbitals - 5 valence e-
4 Molecular Orbitals with Destructive Overlap -
4 Molecular Orbitals with Constructive Overlap - 5e-
I know that by the amount of e-,
the molecular electronic configuration should be:
σ1s2 σ*1s2 σ2s2 σ*2s2 π2px1
But this is not the same as above, as it says the 5 valence e- belong to constructive laps.
