I really need help on the concept of bonding and antibonding orbitals. I know you use sigma molecular orbitals to use with the antibonding and bonding. Can you explain to me how you actually use them with the sigma molecular orbitals and what purpose they have? I'm confused on the concept. Please help thank you~
