    Describe methane using three different models: 1. Simple atomic orbital overlap 2. Valence bond theory 3. Molecular orbital theory For each of the above describe the basic assumptions of the method and the strengths and weaknesses. What experimental observations can be accurately described or predicted using each model?

    Expert Answer

    Depict methane using three divergent copys:

    1. Simple atomic orbital overlap

    2. Valence fetter theory

    3. Molecular orbital theory

    For each of the aloft depict the basic assumptions of the mode and the strengths and weaknesses. What tentative observations can be accurately depictd or predicted using each copy?
