The atomic orbitals of two bromine atoms combine to form the diatomic Br2 molecule. Use the periodic table to determine the atomic orbitals that overlap to form the Br2 molecule and the symbol of the noble gas that has the same electron configuration as the electron configuration of each bonded bromine atom. For example, the 2p atomic orbitals of fluorine atoms overlap to form the F2 molecule. The noble gas that has the same electron configuration as that of each bonded fluorine atom is Ne. To enter the atomic orbitals that overlap and the corresponding noble gas, you would enter 2p,Ne.

@raffle-snaffle bromine has 35 electrons, if it gained 1 electron it would have an electronic configuration similar to krypton
anonymous
  • anonymous
hold on let me look at my periodic table
Photon336
  • Photon336
the electronic configuration of bromine is \[[Ar][4s ^{2}3d ^{10}4p ^{5}\] let's take a look at that p orbital a p orbital can hold a maximum of 6 electrons so this is what we have for our bromine atoms. |dw:1444189473744:dw|

so clearly the bond is happening in 4p

  • anonymous
so the answer is 4p lets discuss how we got there. Let me read the question again.

  • anonymous
what are the boxed with electrons called?
Photon336
  • Photon336
absolutely
Photon336
  • Photon336
so @raffle-snaffle the p orbitals can hold up to a maximum of 6 electrons and each i thin it's subshell contains two electrons, those are what the boxes mean.
Photon336
  • Photon336
so what do you see about the p orbital looking at the figure with those boxes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
does each box represent an orbital? I see that the p orbitals have 6 electrons and adding an additional electron to bromine will make it more like krypton because krypton is more stable.
Photon336
  • Photon336
@raffle-snaffle =] yep that's it
Photon336
  • Photon336
that's why the two bromine atoms make a bond with each other
Photon336
  • Photon336
to ensure that the last orbital is filled.
