Lecture 004: More Lewis Structures and Molecular Orbitals

We continued with examples of Lewis structures: SO2, SO3, N3-, H2SO4, N2O. We just worried about getting the right number of bonds and lone pairs, not the geometry of the molecules. In order to look at geometry we need to look at molecular orbitals. The formation of sp3 and sp2 hybrid orbitals was demonstrated for CH4 and CH2=CH2, respectively.

Please learn how to multiply: ooohh, 6 x 3 = 24. Plus your program doesn't even have an eraser!

Where do you see that error?
The eraser problem got solved later on.
