Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Weightlessness in Orbit....or Anti bonding.... Well bonding means the wave functions constructively interfere which attracts the two atoms together and makes them stable....but antibonding means the phases are out of phase, the atoms are not attracted to one another, and those orbitals are even higher in energy than those of isolated atoms,
