Finding Bond order

Postby Betty Wolkeba section 1L » Sat Jun 09, 2018 9:47 pm

How do we calculate the bond order ? And if possible can someone give an example?

To find the bond order, you create the Lewis structure first to see the amount of bonds in the molecule. For example, NH3, nitrogen has a bond order of 3 while hydrogen has a bond order of 1. It is just the amount of bonds created...including double and triple bonds.

Calculate bond order by dividing the number of bonds between atoms by the total number of bond groups in the molecule after drawing the lewis structure.
