(a) Consider the gaseous molecule BN-. At home, construct the molecular orbital diagram that is consistent with the known order of filling of molecular orbitals in the second period and with BN- being stable and paramagnetic.
What is the bond order of BN-?
(c) What ion of BN is isoelectronic with N2?

(d) Do you expect your answer to part c to be less stable, more stable, or equally stable as BN- from part a?

    WTF "please don't spam"?

    You are a pathetic cheater. No-one should help you. Use your brain if you have one.
