Which of the following options represents the correct bond order ?
A
O2$$-$$  > O2 < O2+
B
O2$$-$$  <  O2  >  O2+
C
O2$$-$$  >  O2  >  O2+
D
O2$$-$$  <  O2  <  O2+

Explanation

$$\,$$ Bond order $$ = {1 \over 2}$$ [Nb $$-$$ Na]

Nb = No of electrons in bonding molecular orbital

Na $$=$$ No of electrons in anti bonding molecular orbital

In O atom 8 electrons present, so in O2, 8 $$ \times $$ 2 = 16 electrons present.

Then in $$O_2^ + $$ no of electrons = 15

in $$O_2^ - $$ no of electrons = 17

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Molecular orbital configuration of O2 (16 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,$$ $${\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,$$ $${\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}} = {\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\,\pi _{2p_x^1}^ * \,\, = \pi _{2p_y^1}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$Na = 6

Nb = 10

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 6} \right] = 2$$

Molecular orbital configuration of O$$_2^ + $$ (15 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\pi _{2p_x^1}^ * \, = \,\pi _{2p_y^o}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 5

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 5} \right]$$ = 2.5

Molecular orbital configuration of $$O_2^ - $$ (17 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\pi _{2p_x^2}^ * \, = \,\pi _{2p_y^1}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 7

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 7} \right]$$ = 1.5

$$O_2^-$$ $$O_2$$ $$O_2^+$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2014

Which one of the following species has plane triangular shape ?
A
N3
B
NO3$$-$$
C
NO2$$-$$
D
CO2

Explanation

Hybridisation of N3 is sp, so it is linear in shape.

Hybridisation of NO3 is sp2, so it is plane triangular in shape.

Hybridisation of NO2 is sp, so it is linear in shape.

Hybridisation of CO2 is sp, so it is linear in shape.
