LCAO

Chemistry Level pending

The MO of the ground state of a heteronuclear diatomic molecule AB is \[\psi_{mol} = C_{A} \phi^{A} + C_{B} \phi^{B}.\] If a bonding electron spends \(75.0\) % of its time in an orbital \(\phi^{A}\) on atom A and \(25.0\) % of its time in \(\phi^{B}\) on atom B, what are the values of \(C_{A}\) and \(C_{B}\)?

Neglect the overlap of the two orbitals.
