Problem: Deduce the BOND ORDER of the following diatomic molecules. You must show your work at how you arrived at the computation of the bond order for full credit.F2

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the bond order of F2. 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:


Bond Order=12[# of e- in bonding MO-# of e- in antibonding MO]
