### Bond Order?

So if the bond order turns out to be 2, does that mean there is a double bond?

Yes. Bond order of 1 means single bond, Bond order of 2 means double bond etc.

What does a non integer bond order signify? For example 1.5? Thanks you for the help!!

One example of a non-integer bond could be a molecule with two bonds, one of which is a double bond and the other a single. Then it'd be 3 divided by 2 and result in a bond order of 1.5.

So bond orders that aren't integers would signify resonance?

quick question: How do you know what you can write the sigma antibonding before the sigma pz state in s molecular orbital theory diagram thanks lol
