Work in groups on these problems. You should try to answer the questions without referring to your textbook. If you get stuck, try asking another group for help.

## Q1.

Sketch the molecular orbital diagram of $$H_2^‐$$. Write the electron configuration of the ions interms of its molecular orbitals. Calculate the bond order.

## Q2

Sketch the molecular orbital diagram of $$H_2^+$$. Write the electron configuration of the ions interms of its molecular orbitals. Calculate the bond order.

## Q3.

Based on the previous two questions, which molecule is most stable? Why?

## Q4.

Sketch the molecular orbital diagram for the following molecules: $$B_2$$, $$N_2$$ and $$C_2$$.
