MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

NEET 2013 (Karnataka)

The pair of species that has the same bond order in the following is
A
CO, NO+
B
NO$$-$$, CN$$-$$
C
O2, N2
D
O2, B2

Explanation

CO = + 8 = 14 electrons
NO+ = 7 + 8 - 1 = 14 electrons
Both have electronic configuration:
$$\sigma 1s^2$$ $$\sigma^* 1s^2$$ $$\sigma 2s^2$$ $$\sigma^* 2s^2$$ $$\sigma 2p_z^2$$ $$\sigma 2p_x^2$$ $$\sigma 2p_y^2$$
Bond order = $$10 - 4 \over 2$$ = 3

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

NEET 2013

Dipole-induced dipole interactions are present in which of the following pairs
A
HCl and He atoms
B
SiF4 and He atoms
C
H2O and alcohol
D
Cl2 and CCl4

Explanation

HCl is polar ($$\mu $$ $$ \ne $$ 0) and He is non-polar ($$\mu $$ = 0) gives dipole-induced dipole interaction.
