The bond's order determines the stability of a molecule or ion



Bond Order


Defination / Uses

The number of electron pairs that form a bond between two atoms is known as bond order. It's used as an indicator of the stability of a bond.

The bond order of a single covalent bond between two atoms is one, a double bond is two, a triple bond is three, and so on. The bond order of two covalently bonded atoms has to be identified.

How to Calculate Bond Order ?

  1. Enter Number of bonding electrons
  2. Enter Number of antibonding electrons
  3. By Subtracting bonding electrons into antibonding electrons and divided by 2
  4. In Result Display the Bond Order
