Densities for the molecular orbitals of N2 Molecular Orbitals - N2

The left and right sides of the diagram show the energy levels of nitrogen atomic orbitals. The center shows the corresponding energy levels of the N2 molecule. Energies and orbitals come from an actual MO calculation, and the energies are drawn to scale.
