This is how I was taught to draw orbital overlap diagrams in my lesson:
The Attempt at a Solution
I have drawn four attempts for a possible orbital overlap diagram of NH3:
Attempt # 1:
For this one, are the atoms arranged correctly? should it be two hydrogen at the bottom and one at the top?
Attempt # 2:
For this one, it doesn't really follow the example taught in the lesson, but does it make sense to do it like this?
Attempt # 3:
should I be hybridizing it...?
Attempt # 4:
Can someone please tell me which and if any of these diagrams are correct?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks :)
