Question #22869

molecular orbitals for N2-

Expert's answer

Molecular orbital configuration for N_{2} = [sigma (1s)]^2 [ sigma*(1s)]^2 [sigma (2s)]^2[sigma*(2s)]^2 [pi(2px)]^2 [pi(2py)]^2 [sigma(2pz)]^2

N_{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)]^1

N

hence molecular orbital configuration of N
