#### What is Bond Order?

__FORMULA__:- 1/2 [Nb – Na]

**How to find bond order?**

First, you have to find the no. of electrons in a given compound or molecule. For example:-

The question is to find the bond order of N2

Then no. of electrons in this molecule is 7+7 = 14

Similarly, for CN- compound, it will be 6+7+1 = 14; for F2 it will be 9+9= 18.

Step2

After adding no. of electron, you will get numbers like 10,11,12,13,14,15,16….etc.

Now, remember this table-

No. of electrons Bond Order

10 – 1

11 – 1.5

12 – 2

13 – 2.5

14 – 3

15 – 2.5

16 – 2

17 – 1.5

18 – 1

It shows that if you get no. of electrons as 14 then bond order will be 3, Similarly for 13 bond order will be 2.5

It means you have to subtract 0.5 in going up and down by 14 electrons for one step.

*â˜»Hurrah*** !** You get the answer! It took less than 10 seconds.

Let’s take some Examples-

**What is the bond order of N2?**

**What is the bond order of F2?**

**What is the bond order of CN-?**
