Can anyone point me to a molecular orbital diagram for N2+?

If N2+ means N2+ then the electron configuration in its orbitals would look like that of boron:



just ignore the writing in the nucleus

N2 is the nitrogen molecule minus an electron and that is  not a molecular orbital diagram.

mmmm.... that is not a molecule or a molecular orbital diagram syko sykes, try again!

sorry about that not being a molecular orbital diagram... i saw orbital and immediately thought electron configuration

to save confusion, could you please use the superscript and subscript buttons to insure we're clear as to what you are trying to say (i.e. N2+)

So this is the MO diagram for N2.

Does this help?

allow me to redeem myself

here's a M.O. diagram of N2+, it should be a little more helpful than my previous post:

Thanks Scooby.  Can you make that diagram bigger.  Can't read it even when I enlarge it.

It should be the same as mine with one less electron. Can you read the one I already posted?
