what is the bond order of the carbide dianion c2 2?Advertisement
Best Answer: The carbide ion has a triple bond. But keep in mind that solid CaC2 is a network solid and each C-C unit is associated with multiple calcium atoms. There are no molecules of CaC2 to draw the Lewis structure of. So all of that business about the two electrons from a ... - read more
Best Answer: Bond order for C2- is 2.5. You can figure this from the formula: bond order = 1/2 x [# of e- in bonding MO's - # of e- in antibonding MO's] C2- has 5 more electrons in bonding than in antibonding MO's. See the reference. You will find an MO diagram of C2 about halfway ... - read more
