Solution: An excited state of the N2 molecule has the electron configuration  (σ 1s2)(σ*1s2)(σ2s2)(σ*2s2)(π2p4)(σ2p1)(π*2p1) Complete the MO diagram for this excited state and compare the bond length in the excited state to that of ground state N2.             

Problem

An excited state of the N2 molecule has the electron configuration 

(σ 1s2)(σ*1s2)(σ2s2)(σ*2s2)(π2p4)(σ2p1)(π*2p1)
