Among the following molecules/ions, C_{2}^{2-}, N_{2}^{2-}, O_{2}^{2-},O_{2} which one is diamagnetic and has the shortest bond length?

  • Option 1)

    O2

  • Option 2)

    N_{2}^{2-}

  • Option 3)

    O_{2}^{2-}

  • Option 4)

    C_{2}^{2-}

Answers (1)

C_{2}^{2-}:- No of electrons = 14

\sigma _{1S}^{2}\: \sigma_{1S^{2}}^{*}\: \sigma _{2S}^{2}\: \sigma_{2S^{2}}^{*}\: \pi _{2px}^{2}= \pi _{2py}^{2}\: \sigma_{2pz^2}

  

(1) It is diamagnetic

(2) B.O= \frac{10-4}{2}=3

 

O_{2}^{2-}:- No of electrons=18

\sigma _{1S}^{2}\: \sigma_{1S^{2}}^{*}\: \sigma _{2S}^{2}\: \sigma_{2S^{2}}^{*}\: \sigma2pz^{2}\: \pi {2px}^{2}= \pi _{2py}^{2}\: \pi _{2px^{2}}^{*}= \pi _{2py^{2}}^{*}

 

 

(1) It is diamagnetic

(2) B.O= \frac{10-8}{2}=1

 

B.O < \frac{1}{Bond\;length}

\therefore ans is C_{2}^{2-}


Option 1)

O2

Option 2)

N_{2}^{2-}

Option 3)

O_{2}^{2-}

Option 4)

C_{2}^{2-}
