Using the molecular orbital energy ordering for second-row
homonuclear diatomic molecules in which the p2p orbitals lie at
lower energy than the s2p, draw MO energy diagrams and
predict the bond order in a molecule or ion with each number
of total valence electrons. Will the molecule or ion be diamagnetic
