Question

Draw molecular orbital diagram of O2 or N2 with magnetic behavior and bond order.

Open in App
Solution

As it can be seen from the MOT of O2, The electrons in the highest occupied molecular orbital are unpaired therefore it is paramagnetic in nature. Also, the bond order can be calculated as [NbNa]/2=[106]/2=2. Therefore there is a double bond present as O=O.
