🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Sims' class at OU.
We’re being asked to determine the bond order of Cl2+. For this, we need to do the following steps:
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:
The molecular orbital diagram for Cl2 will be similar to that of F2:
What is the bond order of Cl 2+ ?
