How to draw Molecular Orbital Diagram of N2 | Simplest Trick – Chemistry

What is the MO diagram and bond order for N2?

What is the MO diagram and bond order for N2 ( in Urdu / Hindi)

Nitrogen (N2) molecule:

            Nitrogen atom has electronic configuration 1s2, 2s2, 2p3.

Two p-atomic orbitals (one from each nitrogen) atom combine to form two molecular orbitals, the bonding molecular orbital σ2px and antibonding molecular orbital σ*2px.

The other four p-atomic orbitals (two from each nitrogen) atom combine to give four molecular orbitals, two bonding molecular orbitals i.e. π2py and π2pz, while two antibonding molecular orbitals i.e. π*2py and π*2pz.

The electron filling in these molecular orbitals follow aufbau, pauli exclusion principle and hund’s rule. All six electrons go to bonding molecular orbitals, so strong bonds will be formed.

Bond order = Number of electrons in BMO – Number of electrons in ABMO     =     6 – 0 = 3

            2                                                              2       

As bond order in Nitrogen is 3 so three bonds i.e. triple bond is formed between two nitrogen atoms (N≡N). Further more as there is no unpaired electron in Nitrogen molecule hence it is diamagnetic.

  1. I really love your site.. Pleasant colors
    & theme. Did you develop this amazing site yourself?
    Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own personal
    website and want to find out where you got this from or what the theme is called.
    Many thanks!


  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping
    maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
    your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
