Chemistry Question - Benzene

  • #1
Hi all!

I have a question regarding benzene and the pi-MOs for benzene. Basically, when you're forming the MO model but manipulating the equations (ie: MO = sum Ci=phi-subi = 1Cs!s1 + C21S2 for H-H sigmna bond) in this equation, how many terms would go in for benzne? Would it be 6?

I know that 6 MOs for benzene result, 3 bonding and 3 anti-bonding, but I wasn't sure how many terms go into this equation. From here, I am stuck.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your kindness.
