# Thread: Bond order of the N2+ ion? Chem help?

1. ## Bond order of the N2+ ion? Chem help?

Can anyone explain how to draw this out and how to calculate it?

2. bump

3. titles misleading, i thought this was a james bond/harry potter hybrid movie thread

Strong fail..(chem help? ) But thanks for the bump =/

5. bond order? like the Lewis dot structure?

6. Like those diagrams that involve the molecular orbtial theory

7. nitrogen 2+ cation? bond order? be more specific brah

8. As follows...

The energy level scheme for the valence orbitals of 2nd period homonuclear diatomic molecules shows the molecular orbitals in the following order of increasing energy:

o 2s < O *2s < pi 2p(y), pi 2p(z)< O 2p(x) < Pi* 2p(y), pi* 2p(z)< O* 2p(x)

Calculate the bond order for the N2+ ion.

9. nevermind brah i'm in intro to chem

10. Oh...yeah this is chem 1A....looks like back to more google searching.

11. I guess what I need is called Molecular Orbital energy Diagrams for N2+

12. wow strong chemistry lol..... my Chem I doesn't involve **** NEARLY as complicated as that. I don't think Chem II and Organic Chem I and II aren't gonna have **** that complicated.

well iirc it goes like this, Nitrogen is 7nth on periodic table right? Which means it has 5 valence electrons, because 2 electrons are in it's 1s shell.

So if it's N 2+ cation, that means it has 2 less electrons than a regular N, which means it has 3 in its valence shell, so 1 electron would be in 2s and 2 electrons would be in 2p... I think because they dont fill a shell right away it would try to put 1 electron in each shell before filling any one, not sure.

If not I think its 2 in 2s and 1 in 2p

14. Found it haha

15. You go to UCI?

Nope...have a friend that does though. Why?

17. Chem 1a, most other schools I've seen use another course # for it.

lol we learned that in chem I, you better hope you learn it in chem II. In ochem they spend maybe 5-6 minutes reviewing it in the first lecture.

oh lol. Most of the schools I've heard of In CALI call it 1A.

Im actually taking it at a JC right now...all the kids in my class are like 20-21 haha.
