Solution: When two atomic orbitals overlap in phase, all of the following occur except:a. constructive interference occursb. a bonding molecular orbital is producedc. the energy of the orbital is always higher and therefore more stabled. the orbitals are added, not subtractede. all of these occur, without exception
