Use a molecular orbital diagram to determine the bond order in the O 2+ ion. Write a valence-electron configuration [(s2s)2] for this ion.
We’re being asked to determine the bond order and electron configuration of O2+. 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:
