The first ionization energy of the oxygen molecule is the energy
required for the following process:
O21g2¡O2 +1g2 + e-
The energy needed for this process is 1175 kJ>mol, very similar
to the first ionization energy of Xe. Would you expect O2 to react
with F2? If so, suggest a product or products of this reaction.
