Solution: Determine the bond order from the molecular orbital diagram of N2. Does the bond order calculated agree with what you would draw for Lewis structures of these molecules? Explain your answer here in addition to providing the bond order values.

Problem

Determine the bond order from the molecular orbital diagram of N2. Does the bond order calculated agree with what you would draw for Lewis structures of these molecules? Explain your answer here in addition to providing the bond order values.

Solution

We are asked to determine the bond order from the molecular orbital diagram of N2 and to check whether the calculated bond order agrees with the Lewis structure of N2.

Part A. Draw the Lewis Structure of N2.

Part B. Determine the bond order from the molecular orbital diagram of N2.

Part C. Explain whether the bond order agrees with the Lewis Structure.
