Construct the molecular orbital diagram of NOand calculate for the bond order and determine if its paramagnetic or diamagnetic

Step 1: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 2: Draw the molecular orbital diagram.

Step 3: Determine if there's an unpaired MO (paramagnetic or diamagnetic)

Step 4: Calculate the bond order of the molecule/ion. Recall that the formula for bond order is: ###### Problem Details
