Calculate for the bond order of H2- using the MO theory and formula for bond order
Step 1: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Step 2: Draw the molecular orbital diagram.
Step 3: Calculate the bond order of the molecule/ion. Recall that the formula for bond order is:
What is the bond order for H2- (hint: use MO theory)?
