12. In these cases, the orbitals or their lobes have opposite signs so that there is a decreased probability of finding the electrons between the two atoms. These situations are referred to as antibonding cases. Because the degree to which electron density increases between two nuclei depends on the overlap integral, covalent bond strength essentially depends on that quantity. 10 Some types of overlap of orbitals that can lead to bond formation (S > 0). 11 Nonbonding arrangements of orbitals (S ¼ 0).

If the atom is placed in a magnetic field, each of these states will represent a different energy. This is the basis for the Zeeman effect. One additional quantum number is required for a complete description of an electron in an atom because the electron has an intrinsic spin. The fourth quantum number is ms, the spin quantum number. It is assigned values of +1/2 or −1/2 in units of h/2π, the quantum of angular momentum. Thus, a total of four quantum numbers (n, l, ml, and ms) are required to completely describe an electron in an atom.

Com 24 Chapter 2 These two sets of quantum numbers describe electrons residing in the 2s level. Taking next the l = 1 value, it is found that six sets of quantum numbers can be written: Electron 1: n ¼ 2; l ¼ 1; ml ¼ þ1; ms ¼ þ1=2 Electron 2: n ¼ 2; l ¼ 1; ml ¼ 0 ; ms ¼ þ1=2 Electron 3: n ¼ 2; l ¼ 1; ml ¼ −1; ms ¼ þ1=2 Electron 4: n ¼ 2; l ¼ 1; ml ¼ þ1; ms ¼ −1=2 Electron 5: n ¼ 2; l ¼ 1; ml ¼ 0; ms ¼ −1=2 Electron 6: n ¼ 2; l ¼ 1; ml ¼ −1; ms ¼ −1=2 These six sets of quantum numbers correspond to three pairs of electrons residing in the 2p level.
