Question #22869

molecular orbitals for N2-

Expert's answer

Molecular orbital configuration for N

N

hence molecular orbital configuration of N

_{2}= [sigma (1s)]^2 [ sigma*(1s)]^2 [sigma (2s)]^2[sigma*(2s)]^2 [pi(2px)]^2 [pi(2py)]^2 [sigma(2pz)]^2N

_{2}^{-}ions is formed by the accept of one electron to N_{2}molecule...this electron will be accepted to sigma(3s) orbital...hence molecular orbital configuration of N

_{2}^{-}= [sigma (1s)]^2 [ sigma*(1s)]^2[sigma (2s)]^2 [sigma*(2s)]^2 [pi(2px)]^2 [pi(2py)]^2 [sigma(2pz)]^2[sigma(3s)]^1Need a fast expert's response?
