Molecular orbitals in Fluorine

fluorine orbitals


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.
