The orbital is an antibonding one.
The region between the two nuclei is close to the orbitals.
The two nuclei are pulled apart by the attractive force of the electrons.
Just as they fill lower-energy atomic orbitals before they fill higher-energy atomic orbitals, electrons fill the lower-energy bonding orbital before the higher-energy antibonding orbital.
The locations are indicated by the plus signs.
You can watch a visualization of the calculated atomic orbitals.
The phases are indicated by shading the orbital lobes.
Constructive wave interference increases the electron density when the same phase overlaps.

The lines show which of the atomic orbitals are related to each other.
One lower-energy (bonding) molecular orbital and one higher-energy (antibonding) orbital result is required for each pair of atomic orbitals that combine.
The distribution of electrons can be predicted by filling the orbitals in the same way that we fill atomic orbitals.
The OpenStax book is available for free at http://cnx.org/content/col11760/1.9 and each orbital can hold a maximum of two electrons with opposite spins.
Just as we write electron configurations for atoms, we can do the same with the electronic configuration.
For clarity, we place parentheses around the same energy.
parentheses separate each orbital because they are at a different energy.
The core electrons can be omitted from the diagrams and configurations.
The diagram shows the orbitals of the valence shell only.
The same principle and rule are used to fill the molecular orbitals.
The number of electrons in the filled diagram is shown.
Bond order is the number of bonding pairs of electrons between two atoms.
A single bond has a bond order of 1, a double bond has a bond order of 2, and a triple bond has a bond order of 3.
The bond order is usually the same when we use the description of the distribution of electrons.
Both methods describe the same phenomenon, but the MO technique is more accurate and can handle cases when the Lewis structure method fails.
An electron contributes to an antibonding interaction if it occupies an antibonding orbital.
The destabilizing electrons are subtracted from the stabilizing electrons in the advanced theories of covalent bonding.
We divide by two to get the bond order.
A stable bond does not have a bond order of zero if the distribution of electrons in themolecular orbitals between two atoms is such that the resulting bond would have a bond order of two.
The energy of a H2 molecule is lower than that of two H atoms.
A single upward arrow shows one electron in an orbital, and two upward and downward arrows show two electrons of opposite spin, in this configuration.
H2 is predicted to be a stable molecule with lower energy than the separated atoms.
The H-H bond is a single bond because of the bond order being equal to 1.
The stabilizing effect of the two electrons in the lower-energy bonding orbital would be offset by the destabilizing effect of the two electrons in the higher-energy antibonding molecule.
There is no driving force for the formation of the diatomic molecule because of the zero net energy change.
The bond order in a dihelium molecule would be zero.

We predict electron configurations of atoms.
The lowest possible energies are assigned to valence electrons.
When there are two or more degenerate molecular orbitals, electrons fill each of them singly before any pairs of electrons take place.
S bonds are more stable than p bonds formed from atomic orbitals.
S orbitals are usually more stable than p orbitals.
This is not always the case.

The second period shows the MO diagrams for each diatomic molecule.
The effective nuclear charge increases and the atomic radius decreases.
This can be used to practice labeling and filling.
The result is that the ss orbital becomes more stable and the sp orbital becomes less stable.
The antibonding orbitals also undergo s-p mixing, with the ss* becoming more stable and the sp* becoming less stable.
The MO pattern occurs as expected, with the sp orbital lower in energy than the sp orbitals.
The sp orbital is higher in energy than the pp orbital when s-p mixing occurs.
The pattern where the sp orbital is raised above the pp set is where all of the other period 2 diatomic molecules have s-p mixing.
The Be2 and Ne2 molecule have a bond order of 0 and do not exist.
The two atoms have the same electron.
The Li2 molecule would be stable because both valence electrons were in a bonding orbital.
The molecule is present at a temperature near the boiling point of the element.
The other molecules in Table 8.3 with a bond order greater than zero are also known.
We expect the two electrons that occupy these two degenerate orbitals to be unpaired, and this molecular electronic configuration for O2 is in accord with the fact that the oxygen molecule has two unpaired electrons.
The unpaired electrons of the oxygen molecule provide support for the theory.
The bonding orbital is lower in energy than the original atomic orbitals because they are in-phase.
The antibonding orbital has higher energy than the original atomic orbitals because they are out-of-phase.

Antibonding orbitals will result.
The allowed energy levels for all the bonding orbitals are so close together that they form a band.
The antibonding orbitals are very close together and form a band.
The orbitals are called bands because they are so close to each other.
The energy of the two bands is lower in the valence band.
The size of the band gap between the two bands determines the type of solid.
Only a small amount of energy is required to move electrons from the valence band to the conduction band in a conductor.
Poor conductors of electricity are caused by the large band gap in an insturment.
Semiconductors conduct electricity better than conductors, but not as well.
In order to conduct electricity, electrons must move from the filled band to the empty band.
The energy difference between the top of the band and the bottom of the band determines how easy it is to move electrons between the bands.
The band gap is small and only a small amount of energy is required in a conductor.
They are good conductors of electricity because of the small energy difference.
Poor conductors of electricity are a result of the band gap being so large that very few electrons move into the band.
Semiconductors conduct electricity when moderate amounts of energy are provided to move electrons out of the valence band and into the conduction band.
Silicon is found in many electronics.
Semiconductors are used in a variety of devices.
Light can move electrons out of the valence band and produce electricity from solar cells.
The generated electricity can be used to power a light or a tool, or it can be stored for later use.

We can use hybrid orbitals, which are mathematical combinations of some or all of the atomic orbitals, to describe the electron density.
These hybrid orbitals can either be sigma bonds directed toward other atoms of the molecule or lone pairs of electrons.
The geometry of the regions of electron density can be used to determine the type of hybridization around a central atom.
A s bond is located along the axis between two atoms and one or two p bonds.
The s bonds are usually formed by the overlap of hybridized atomic orbitals, while the p bonds are usually formed by the side-by-side overlap of un hybridized orbitals.
When there are multiple un hybridized orbitals, the placement of p bonds can vary.
