Chemistry

Can someone explain the molecular orbital theory and how to find the bond strength, bond length, and bond order? I'm also confused about the geometry of molecules & ions, like how to find the angles? (Like NH3 is 107 degrees, and H20 is 104.5 degrees, how do I find this when I'm given a certain molecule?)

The subjects in your post cover AT LEAST six or seven chapters in a freshman chemistry text and that is just an introduction. You have far too much waterfront to cover in one post.

dont you just use vsper theory to calculate the bond angles, find out the type of bond it is (tetrahedral etc) and go from there?


I think!
