a: Molecular orbitals ~
b: waves


"You are aware that molecular orbitals are like waves in that they have amplitudes. And these amplitudes may be positive or negative. If two orbitals are positioned in space in such a way that a positive part of one overlaps a positive part of another, the result will be that they will combine constructively to produce an orbital that is bigger and positive in that region of space."
