Problem

Using the molecular orbital energy ordering for second-row homonuclear diatomic molecules in which the π2p orbitals lie at lower energy than the σ2p, predict the bond order in a molecule or ion with each of the following numbers of total valence electrons.(Use the drawing MO energy diagrams). Will the molecule or ion be diamagnetic or paramagnetic?

Determine the bond order in a molecule or ion with 8 valence electrons.
