The molecular formula is N2.
It was discovered by Daniel Rutherford in 1772.
- It is a diatomic gas.
- The triple bond that exists between nitrogen of molecule is quite strong therefore bond dissociation energy is high.
- It is an inert gas.
- Nitrogen is smallest in its group.
- Nitrogen is most electronegative.
- Nitrogen has highest ionization energy in its group.
- Nitrogen has no vacant d orbital.
